More ‘bikes in china’ related photos tomorrow…but for now, here’s SWA Shanghai at Oktoberfest (in Sept).
YAY!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it in person – a hooch presentation is in order. =) Have fun in Shanghai and safe trip home!
You made it! I’m sure Oktoberfest was moved to September just for you…
Hey Congrats on the successful and interesting trip. Saw you on YouthLA.org. Why dont you continue cycling to Shenzhen, southern China. The PRD region is building more than 1678 km Green Ways suitable for cycling and walking in 3 years since 2010. The function of these biking lanes is more than commuting, they provide with recreational use and exercising for citizens. It is well planned and designed, integrating and interacting with landscapes. If this is your first time in China, you really should come, if the SWA budget isn’t tight haha~ I am also a landscape architect but practicing urban planning now. There are so many things about green transportation we can do in urban planning in China. My company IBR is designing energy-saving buildings from the past decade and we are now exploring low-carbon city planning. It includes smart growth of land use, green transportation, green building etc. I think landscape architects should participate more and bring the essentials of Landscape Architecture into the rapid development of Chinese cities. It is urgent and important to change the way we build Chinese cities! Anyway, hopefully we can discuss what SWA is doing in sustainable planning. Good luck with your stay in China, if you decide to visit SZ city, you can email me and my pleasure to show you around.
BTW, i’m also keen on cycling.
