This text relates my experience as a landscape architect in China.It should be understood in the context of the country's concentrated political system and in the transitional time of the technocratic society. I do not intend for it to be read as me blowing my own trumpet to asmall audience from the very small and sometimes—or,perhaps,often—powerless profession that we call landscape architecture.But if my personal experience is valuable for my colleagues, pro-fessionals, and academics to understand the potential power of this profession, such a risk is worthwhile.
