The project involves a masterplan on a 55 ha site in Fujian, China. Blessed with the beauty of undulating hills and existing water body, the project showcases landscape open spaces, sport fields, dormitories, faculty buildings, hotel and residential villas. IO landscape team was commissioned for 2 phases including the main Administrative building with decorative entry parks, public spaces associated with 9 faculty buildings, four dormitory buildings with  common garden areas and an iconic canteen building along a waterfront promenade.

IO brought to the site a cherry blossom concept which strives to create a picturesque setting. The design aimed to maximize the efficiency of the local eco-systems, enhance the campus environment and quality, and demonstrate local culture and features.
