The Construction of Xi'an Urban Overall Water Environment
The natural features and patterns of "Eight water Chang'an" is one of important symbols of the Tang Dynasty Culture,This paper discusses from the urban planning level the necessity of constructing the " Chang'an eight water" and its basic principles and methods, explores ways and means to achieve the objective from two levels of the long-term planning strategy and the gradual implementation.The paper propose in the course of restoration "Chang'an eight water" urban landscape basal, an overall planning must be developed from the perspective of urban water environment to change the linear metabolic pattern, and to construct the urban water system recirculating network.With the existing situation of urban water environment, trying to solve on-site problems of urban rain, sewage purification from the self-circulation. Considering the integrated relations among urban water catchment, water storage, water diversion projects and making them penetration with each other, from the point to surface progressively recovering the city "metabolic function" as a basic ecological node to improve the urban living environment.
