Square & Round by Turenscape, a Chinese landscape architecture firm founded by doctor and professor Kongjian Yu, is a garden installation that provides a nice reflective path. The winding walkway, which acts as a sort of bridge over a shallow pond, is in line with the studio's previous designs Bridge Gardens and Red Ribbon Park. Each of them follow a squiggly line that adds a dynamic touch to all outdoor settings. Not to mention the prevalence of the color red.

In this case, the red accent in Square & Round by Turenscape manifests through the use of long sticks that act like a screen or manmade reeds. Located at the Ch√Ęteau Chaumont in France, it introduces the Chinese gardening philosophy about man and nature.
