The dark green type of eco-village is the symbol of city which means that city has a high sustainable development. This paper proposed the "network overlay" design of the eco-city from the eye of "dark green" which based on the coal power station re-design of Xuzhou in China. The combination of the public space network, the public transport networks and the energy circulation network has positive feedback to spatial layout in social, cultural and economic aspects. During the planning process of eco-village, the LEED-ND rating system which is introduced to assess the level of carbon, can be used to prove the results are consistent with the sustainable standards.
