Landscape intervention--Home, Spot, Path
Form. Abies georgei var. smithii
Aa variation of Abies georgei Orr which is an endemic species of China, it is a rare residual species. Those growing in Jiaozi Mountain is an edge species type that lies in the southest of Abies georgei Orr distribution area.

still poor resource waste
Form. Rhododendron rubiginosum
As the origin of many streams, it plays an importan role in soil and water conservation. It has rich species diversity and some of them are rare and endangered. It also has high ornamental value.
Scenic site rotation mechanism
Form. Rhododendron fastigiatum Form. Rhododendron siderophyllum Form. Rhododendron racemosum
in all these years
Rhododendron shrub is the most representative vegetation of Jiaozi Mountain since it is most widely distributed and has the largest distribution area. It is composed of more than 20 types of Ericaceae plants.

Home& Spot strategy
1 follow nativesâ€™ paths
2 research landscape resources of all types pasture
3 grade them
5 locate Home sites for the first rotation circle
stream mountain hoodoos
4 conclude six representative landscape types of Jiaozi Mountain
6 locate Spot sites for the first rotation circle
They donnot define a path, they simply borrow a path to move and a place to stay.
They share one same destination yet have different paths.
7 adjust Home&Spot site location according to the site slop and the distance between them
8 put Stopping Point along the path
Listen, the rope is talking!
Here is a site for Spot!
“You are here
“Have a walk !”
“Follow me !”
Here is a site for Home! site
story of the process- video
It stars with a big bell hung on a big azalea tree...
Yards grew around the first house in layers.
A second house was generated.
We happen to see children climbbing the rock and decide to make the wall under constructing a slope.
We saw children playing stones and decide to stop constructing the unfinished wall leaving some stones.
A new yards generated new possibilities.
In constructing the third house, a tree helped us!
Then a yard of azalea trees was generated.
The forth house was generated.
We create a back yard for it which leads to the nearby azalea foretsts.
In this yard we planted a different azalea tree species.
We welcomed the stream to enter our yards.

The houseâ€™s growth story
A place lies among mountains and lakes.
A house is born by will of interacting with nature.
She wants to meet nature in peace and escape from daily trifles. Then a corridor appears.
She wants to keep some nature in arms, then a patio appears.
She wants to embrace nature in everyday life, so a branch patio and corridor grow from the trunk.
When the last patio is born, she hears nature flowing inside her, echoing.
Sense organs-- patios & corridors Patio I
Patio I is the arms of the house. It embraces nature and completes itself with the right hand on the left arm and the left on the right.
Corridor I Patio I
Corridor I is the eyes of the house. It lets nature in and flies her secret layers of stories.
