The unique design takes influence of the existing cultural and natural landscapes as well as introducing new irrigation techniques, which divide water using bamboo and stones.

  1. 3 – what do you mean by “accommodating” surrounding buildings? this is very vague
    3 – what are the existing cultural and natural landscapes? is it the architectural forms? is it the mountains? unless you make this clear then there is no context against which to understand new irrigation techniques, bamboo and stones.
    5 – “marking” is a good way to call out an existing condition

    this is the type of writing i expect to read on the back of a post card.
    try and “dig deeper” to understand what it is that you’re seeing and writing about.
    these are highly provocative, deeply intellectual design works.
    surely something was ‘revealed’ to you.
