Prof. Hu Presents: The Shan-Shui Mountain-Water City

Monday, July 27th - 4pm Presentation | 5:30pm Social 

Location: Seattle, WA, To Be Announced 

Herrera invites you to a special presentation by Professor Jie Hu. China is experiencing urbanization at a scale previously unseen in world history.  Much of the new urban development is very international, rather than Chinese, in character.  Prof. Jie Hu will discuss how the Tsinghua Tongheng Planning and Design Institute attempts to infuse projects with both 21st century ecological science and the spirit of Chinese culture and tradition, especially the Shan-Shui (Mountain-Water) City Concept.  Following an overview of the source and principles of Shan-Shui cities, Hu will present how these ideas are illustrated in his prize-winning designs for the Beijing Olympic Forest Park (twice the size of New York City’s Central Park), Tangshan Nanhu Eco-city Central Park, and other large scale landscape planning and design projects.
