Tanghe River Park Red Ribbon, Qinhuangdao City, is an excellent example of contemporary landscape design in China. It has a 500 m Red Ribbon, made of steel and fiberglass, in a natural wetland habitat. The ribbon, and its red colour, are a uniquely Chinese conception - without being a sentimental historical re-creation. The park was designed by Kongjian Yu of Turenscape, who runs one of the largest landscape architecture firms in China.
See blog post on Tanghe River Park. 'Old China had elegant concubines with bound feet strolling in lang corridors. New China can have fleet-of-foot girls bursting with energy as they race through the urban landscape.'
