Turenscape was founded by Dr. Kongjian Yu in 1998 and is one of the first and largest private architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism practices in China. Dr. Yu’s pioneering research on Ecological Security Patterns and Sponge Cities has been adopted by the Chinese government as the guiding theory for national land use planning, eco-city campaigns, and urban ecological restoration. Dr. Yu’s clear vision of bringing harmony between Earth and people has been used to transforming many heavily polluted wastelands into aesthetics of sustainability.
Turenscape has planned and designed over 300 ecological cities and 1000 landscape projects in China and internationally. Turenscape’s projects have earned great international reputation for innovative and environmentally sound designs and have consecutively won many international awards including numerous American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) awards and five World’s Best Landscape Awards at the World Architecture Festival (WAF).
