In Progress: Flowing Gardens / Plasma Studio

About a year ago, we shared one of our favorite Plasma Studio designs with you – an International Horticultural Fair Complex.  The project is a large master plan that blends architecture, landscape and circulation into one system using a network of organic paths.  Four major buildings and a range of smaller interventions are scattered within the landscape.  The studio has shared recent construction photos with us, and more renderings, that we’ll share more with you after the break.

This exposition is the next major event China is hosting after the Beijing Olympics and the Shanghai Expo.  In just under a year, Plasma Studio had to design the 37ha complex and being construction.   Plasma Studio led a strong team in order to accomplish the project in such a short time frame.   The team included GroundLab (Landscape Urbanism), LAUR Studio Beijing and BIAD with additional consultants Arup and John Martin and Partners.

The Expo will open in April 2011 and attract an estimated 200,000 visitors a day.  Read more about the project here.
