Z+T studio is seeking a design approach for creating landscape based on specific site both domestically and internationally. This method is based on the core of Chinese
philosophy – subordinate to nature. We refine nature by reproduce infrastructure (pragmatic demand of engineer) based on reinforced culture (by space, symbol, and
form). Z+T studio will keep in traditional hand-craft mode of production, which is a small size of studio for custom design. Designers need to be in companied with whole procedure from concept design to site inspiration, and coordinate with specialists and proficient in different disciplines in details.
