Text description provided by the architects. Dream Garden is an experimental design of morphologic research on the settlement. Challenges of the site: It was almost in a vacuum at the first time we got to the site. There was nothing but brand new industry park and buildings, which had no link to the city, site, and history. Maybe it’s the most common problem we shall confront in China. This current situation cut off the access to the eternity. To create an individual and dynamic world to resist the nihility, we shall learn from settlement and nature. It has a long history in China.
