Meet the Team!

Name: Baoxin Yang
Year: M.Arch1
Atelier: FLUX
BArch Architecture: JLJU
Part 1 Placement: Tianjin Meixin Architectural Design Co.

Interests & Skills: I really enjoy travelling and photography. Also, I enjoy the sport of archery because it allows me to practice staying focused on things. I use Revit, SU, AI, PS and ID.

What gardens mean to me: For me, it can be a memory of running through the grass with a kite as a child. It can also be a relief from the stress of a busy school day. With the increasing urbanization and population growth, parks are becoming more and more of a specimen of a scattered concrete forest.

On our first day, Green Corridor Gateway met our partners, Vicky and Kate, for an online introduction and leader training talk to ensure our safety on site. In the afternoon we visited the site for a tour from Kate, and then met partners Jen and Cathy and their kids to hear about their aspirations for Bluebell Green. We took photos, drew sketches and discussed their plans for the garden.
