Preserving wetlands with a red ribbon

Feb 21, 2010

It's hard to believe that this lush, natural habitat in Qinhuangdao City, China was once a dumping ground for garbage.  Designed by landscape architect Kongjian Yu, the waterfront park along the Tanghe River has become a popular place of gathering for local residents. The most noted feature of the park is the red steel "ribbon" that spans for a third of a mile.  It functions as seating, and it actually glows at night!  So beautiful!
