Brief Intro

“China has an extremely long, creative and strong tradition of landscaping. From manmade landscapes with walls over 70km long to small intricate recreations of nature. The west has taken and adapted many key design movements such as natural planting and materials from these landscapes. China has embraced western modern movements and technology. Its incorporated them into their own traditions while developing projects and changing the landscape quicker than anywhere else in the world, more than any time in history. Where is landscaping going today and tomorrow? Are they actually beneficial? How or even does architecture integrate into the landscape. What comes first? Is the landscape just window dressing to the building. Whats the program and plan for the landscape or even is there an ROI to the landscape. How do we deal with this notion of time, lack of it, speed of change, leadership and development. We give ourselves awards without visiting what we are awarding or even judging it over time. Should we spend more time educating creativity or using students as low cost / free labour to gain experience? Will any of it have any longevity, will any of it actually last, will it increase in value? These are the questions that we aim to ask and hopefully we can challenge each other on the answers.”
