Tangshan Expo Designer Garden
As part of the 2016 International Horticulture Exposition in Tangshan, Dr Diane Menzies was invited to design a New Zealand garden as one of 5 international designers invited to create in the Masters’ garden section of the expo. Dr Menzies engaged Reset Urban Design, along with Reuben Kirkwood of Ngai Tai, to co design the Tangshan garden.
In late April Diane and Garth were in Tangshan as guests of the Provincial Government for the grand opening of the expo which covers 50ha and is expected to be visited by over 17 million people. The expo is one of the largest in China and it is part of Tangshan’s new phase of post-industrial development to become an eco-city.
