As a high quality green belt in the city, a city's waterfront landscape is can be a liveable and comfortable place. For citizens, it is also an attractive place to live in. A good city waterfront landscape can be updated and maintained by itself. Therefore, we can not treat the urban waterfront area as just a beautiful landscape in aesthetic terms, but we should also understand it in deeper and broader dimensions.
The urban waterfront landscape directly affects the urban structure, the urban ecological environment and the life quality of the urban residents. By analysizing
the two cases, Western Harbor in Malmö and Jinji Lake in Suzhou China, we can draw some interesting conclusions about waterfront landscape.
Through the discussion of this subject, I aim for an understanding of the urban waterfront landscape as a harmonious system with the artificial and natural landscapes working together, based on scientific and artistic aspects.
