China's landscape designer Kongjian Yu and his office Turenscape are the foremost landscape architecture firm in China today. The vast scale of China and its apparently boundless growth have enabled Yu to test many ideas that are still largely theories in the western world. His work, increasingly valued and appreciated in Europe and North America, has attained an extremely high level in both conception and execution. Among his most acclaimed projects are Houtan Park for Shanghai Expo, the Red Ribbon Park in Qinhuangdao, and Shipyard Park in Zhongshan. This book explores Yu's work in ten essays by noted authors and extensively documents some 18 selected projects.
