28 Apr Looking Up and Looking Forward
Posted at 19:35h in Uncategorized 0 CommentsBrief Note from Richard leaving ChinaI’m on my way back from China reflecting on some of the best opportunities and heaviest responsibilities I’ve gotten myself into since starting ecocity work almost 50 years ago. I first gave a plenary talk at the Tenth International Green Building and Technology Conference and Expo in Beijing. Then I spoke to university audiences at Tsinghua University in Beijing, Tongji University, Shanghai; Tianjin University in Tianjin and Southeast University in Nanjing. How my hosts at C&P Architecture in Beijing, especially Mr. Bin Fan, President of C&P, and Ruby Yangxue, my translator, guide and general assistant, pulled it all together is quite amazing—and at very short notice too.The story is long and my space here short, but two photos and two short observations, one something of a confession, are in order.Confessions first, so, as usual with confessions, I can then move on more relaxed.
