Name of Project: Protecting Paradise: The Embassy of Environmental Philanthropy
Project Description: Inspired by the 16th century Chinese classical novel "The Monkey King" where heroes fight to protect the heavens, the project demonstrates how peace, equality and freedom prove to be democratic design tools that can protect Paradise, the most extensive rainforest of Central America. Protecting Paradise: The Embassy Of Environmental Philanthropy draws upon a diplomatic and bilateral economic agreement that cultivates environmental protection, ethical authority, and political trust between China and the small Central American country of Nicaragua. This thesis brings forward a discourse on foreign investments in underdeveloped countries as well as a demonstration of environmental awareness and protection practices, bringing together tourists and locals in an environment governed by five principles of peaceful coexistence.
