China – Then and Now

Forty years after submitting this grade 5 project on China (see below), it would seem that Howard Rideout has now completed a project in every city he depicted in his hand-drawn map.

The list below details the projects Howard has designed while working with the B+H Shanghai offices. The names of each city is indicated, along with the evolution of its name and a link to images of the projects on the HRA website.

Dairen – now known as Dalian – Dalian Fisherman’s Wharf

Peking – now Beijing – Tianjin Waterfront Master Plan (100km from Beijing HSR)

Tsingtao – now Qingdao – Qingdao Xiaomai Island

Hangchow – now Hangzhou – Zhoushan Leisure Island

Haikou – Pullman Oceanview Sanya Bay Resorts & Spa (Sanya, near Haikou on island of Hainan)

Below is the notebook created in 1974.  Its funny that the topics of art, culture and food are still dominant aspects of Howard’s life!
