Leisure Destination II

Our team went into a small village in Yunnan. The village was poor but quite famous as one of its citizen’s was Yang, the Father of the Green Movement in China (our title for him). The man is China’s version of Johnny Appleseed. We used the opportunity to facilitate current trends in Leisure Destinations and Village Regeneration techniques and successfully attained the government contract. Below are some sketches from that exercise.
