Author: Mei Sheng
With the progress of urbanization in China, a large number of residential communities had been developed over the last two decades, and deeply influenced the profession of landscape architecture in this country. With the coming of tremendous opportunities, problems also raised from fast developments. The following issues can be found in many places: overstressing the short term visual effects in design, and overlooking the demands from residences and users. They do not only turn the landscape design into a quick solution that has limited sustainability over time, but also make negative impacts on the environment and community life for the future. With this in mind, this article discusses the above issues, and provides two multi-family design case studies on how to make the landscape grow and interact with time, nature and human activities.
