The residential building is the most frequently used place for people. How to plan a modern residential district is an important issue that contemporary architects must study carefully. This paper takes Youngor International Garden in Suzhou as an example to make a detailed analysis of the planning and design of the modern high-rise residential district. The research includes the planning concept, landscape design, architectural design, and so on. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the methods of the residential district planning and design and provide a reference for other similar projects. This research has used the case analysis method. Generally speaking, successful residential district planning and design should start from the needs of human, deal with the relationship between man, architecture and nature, and create a green living environment. In addition, the design should pay attention to absorbing the essence of traditional residential buildings too.
