|one of the many connecting bridges|
This is a baby of mine that I have started from competition and then went through to construction. This was the first time that I had designed a hospital landscape and it was a high profile one. There were lots of coordination meetings, press conferences, presentations and liaison with different consulting teams. Indeed, it was a product of blood, sweat and tears. I had spent countless sleepless nights because of design concepts and revisions, rushed deadlines as well as a demanding work and coordination schedule. I was not just the designer but I was doing project manager and director duties. But all the efforts are worth it because this project won several awards. The client wanted a rainforest in the middle of the hospital ,(the concept is a hospital within a garden,not a garden within a hospital) and that is what he got. I can see the forest now, about 4 years after its completion. This was also my first time to use gfrc timber for fire engine access(E.V.A) and I fell in love with the beauty of this material.too bad I haven't found it here in China. Pictures are from the web.
