China Trip

Garth has recently returned back from a trip to Beijing and Tangshan in China. Reset, together with Diane Menzies, have been involved in the design for a NZ garden at the 2016 Horticultural Expo in Tangshan. The expo marks the fortieth anniversary of a massive earthquake that hit the city in 1976. Garth and Diane were generously hosted and shown around several significant landscape sites by local students including the Summer Palace, the Olympic Park and the Forbidden City. While in Tangshan they met with the Expo officials and began working with a group of PhD students on the detail design for the garden. While in China, Garth also gave a guest lecture at Beijing’s School of Landscape Architecture to over 2500 students.
