Plasma Studio and Groundlab’s Flowing Gardens project for the International Horticultural Expo in China (pictured above) has been completed, ready for next week’s opening.

The two London practices jointly won an international competition in 2009 to design three buildings and landscape the 37ha expo site in Xi’an.

Its legacy will be a permanent park and – the authorities hope – the redevelopment of the district between the airport and the centre of the ancient city, home to the Terracotta Army.

  • This project is proof of the growing demands of China as its economy booms and the country's development continues apace. It is fitting China should look to Britain for quality architects for projects, this a note of the high regard and acumen of British architects cannot be overlooked. And on!
