1. Requirements to the project:
(1) For a built project, it should be completed after 2008;
(2) For an unbuilt project, it should be designed after 2009;
(3) If the project has been published in other Chinese magazines, please notify us when and where it is published.
2. Firstly, send several images and a short introduction of the project (location, completed time, features, and design concept).
After LD's confirmation about publishing, then you provide the following materials. (This is helpful for avoiding the situation that you take time and effort to prepare many materials but LD will not publish it.）
3. An English text about 600-1000 words or longer, Project Credit, Photo Credit, and Writing Credit. All are saved in a Word file.
The text mainly expresses the design concept, the features and functions of the project, and so on. It's better written in fluent sentences so that it's easy for us to translate into Chinese.
A Chinese version of the article will be highly appreciated. If that is really difficult for you, LD will ask some translators to do the translation.
Project Credit includes Location, Client, Completed Time/Planning Time (if it's not been completed yet), Cost, designers and so on
4. About 20 reality images and about 10 engineering drawings in tif or jpg, with no less than 300dpi,
including but not limited to site plans, draft plans, artist renders, sketches, drawings, cross-section, aerial photos which can show the design concept of the project. The size of 1 page is 240mm×328mm, so please make sure the images are large enough, because sometimes one image will be laid out across 2 pages. It would be best if there are some simple Captions for each image, just a few words or a short sentence.
You could upload images to LD's ftp.
Or you could mail CD to us. Our address is
