While at Rana Creek, Marie acted as Project Manager and Lead Designer for the JNBY Headquarters in Hangzhou, China. Working with the architects Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Marie and the design team developed concepts for a 10 acre mixed use super-block that included a large public park, sunken gardens, interior gardens, massive facades planted with native vines, and 5 acres of urban agriculture on the roofs of 16 buildings. The Hangzhou region is well known for the cultivation of Longjing tea, a cultivar of green tea. To tell the important story of how the tea is a major part of Hangzhou culture and history, the design team developed a design for cultivating the tea on the rooftops of the buildings for serving in tea houses on the rooftop park below. In order to ensure the success of this major undertaking, Marie developed multiple mockups on the JNBY site to test the methodology and design for the tea plants, living walls and roof planting designs. Lastly, Marie traveled throughout China to search for and select over 500 trees and 7000 tea plants for the rooftop public park that were transported to a contract grow nursery specifically for the project years ahead of time. The project is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2019.
