I was hired in mid-2011 to document the construction and landscaping of a multi-million dollar renovation of the Japanese Garden located at The Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA. As part of the process the first tea house built in the US after WWII (and erected at the Buddhist temple in Altadena) was disassembled and sent to Japan for examination and repair/replacement of original materials.

It was sent back and re-erected on it's new site at The Huntington. That is the first time lapse. Chapter Two: The Landscape Process is about the second half of the process when the landscaping and finishing touches were performed.

I shot all content, performed all editing, sourced all music and sound effects. The client gave me carte blanch to do what I felt was necessary to tell their story.
