Prof. Sun Xiaoxiang. A tribute from Martha Fajardo IFLA Former President and Honorary member

“Life is a dream walking, death is a going home.”  Chinese Prover

We are saddened to hear about the untimely passing of Prof. Sun Xiaoxiang.

Death can never take a good man away, for, in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and continuous throughout generations. He was a great teacher and inspiration to many and may his soul find eternal rest.

I have de honor to know him from several years, he supports the Chinese Society of Landscape Architects affiliation in IFLA. Thanks to him CHSLA become a full member of the IFLA global family in 2005 and. What a delightful memory when with James Hayter in Peking we received his wise guidance and his wonderful watercolor paintings.

Please convey our deepest condolences to his family and friends.  We will certainly miss his wonderful personality and caring contributions in our landscape journey

With very best regards,
