Addressing the "boundary" between the city and the river is the most important aspect of the task. The relocation of the dykes, balancing the flood requirements, is a first approach to a new system of shoreline along the river in Tangshan. It is a matter of relief language to transform linear horizontal elements into a three-dimensional river space. What is demanded is space for controlled flooding and what is needed in particular are people who are tolerant of flooding, respectively the demand for a city that lives with and not against the flood.
