Newcastle landscape firm develops links with China

Insite Environments to look at the use of virtual reality in the large-scale urban planning of Tianjin

Newcastle upon Tyne-based landscape and urban design practice Insite Environments is visiting China to develop links between academia and industry. The company will undertake a project looking at the use of virtual reality for large-scale urban planning in Tianjin, China. Planner Tao Zhai has spent a year in Newcastle learning Insite’s approach to urban design on projects including the new campus at Northumbria University. The team is linking with Northumbria University department of the built environment lecturer Keith Hogg to explore joint possibilities in China. More building projects began in China’s capital Beijing in the last year than in the whole of Europe. Insite director Bob Branson said: “With the speed of development happening in China, this is a market of which we have to sit up and take notice.”
