SLA’s founder Stig L. Andersson has , together with four other internationally renowned landscape designers, been selected to create International Master Gardens for the Beijing International Horticultural Expo 2019. SLA’s Master Garden is YUAN, a new Chinese sign for ‘garden’. In the project, SLA aims to create a new meaning of the Chinese garden in the Anthropocene era. YUAN draws on a deep knowledge of China’s cultural history, nature, art, architecture and philosophy and re-uses these elements in a new and profound way. Thus, YUAN shows how we can use traditional Chinese culture and nature in modern city planning to improve the quality of life for China’s population, while at the same time solving many of the challenges our cities, our world and we ourselves face today.
