An old project but not forgotten: Zhu Yu Fan’s landscape design of the Quarry Garden in Shanghai & his art installation at the Venice Biennale 2010. See Blogroll for a link.

Text taken from http://www.asla.org/2012awards/139.html “Quarry Garden is located at the center of Shanghai Chen Mountain Botanical Garden, covering an area of 4.26 hectares (10.53 acres). Chen Mountain is isolated in the Garden and is nearly 70 meters (229.7 feet) high. This project involves the ecological restoration of abandoned quarry and the recovery of five classic sights of the ” Chen Mountain Eight Sights” based on the site condition and traditional context” working with THUPDI and Tsinghua University, Beijing /
