Application of the Technology in Sponge Campus in China

In recent years, China has vigorously promoted the theory of Sponge City to deal with the increasingly serious water problem in urban. As a classification of Sponge City, the theory and practice of Sponge Campus have a huge exemplary effect. In order to facilitate the research, firstly, the paper analyzes the main situation of campus construction in China, points out its shortcomings in the use of rainwater resources, which also reflects the necessity and long-term significance of the Sponge Campus construction in China. In order to further promote the practice and theoretical research of the Sponge Campus in China, this paper analyzes the technology and strategy in the construction and landscape design of several Sponge Campuses at home and abroad, and discusses the planning and design methods of the Sponge Campus. These reference cases not only include the new Sponge Campus projects, but also the sponge transformation of traditional buildings, which has rich reference value. On the basis of cases study and combined with the concrete practices of the Sponge Campus construction, this paper puts forward some design principles of sponge campus construction, expecting the further development of relevant theories, so as to promote the construction of sponge campus for ecological development in China.
