By Bob's Your Uncle VINE VOICE on April 19, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Contemporary interest in Chinese culture has sparked a curiosity about Chinese garden design as well. Originally built for resort homes in ancient China, these gardens for a haven of peace and tranquility, even In an urban setting.
This timely work fills the need for a professional reference source that lays down the design principles for these gardens so that you can utilize them in today's landscape architecture. Beginning with history and basic ideas, the book covers the architectural and environmental design of Chinese gardens and also compares them with Japanese and European guards.
Generously illustrated with site plans, elevations, and photographs, this beautiful work presents the Chinese garden as a dynamic, seemingly spacious environment, with ever-changing elements such as the seasons and weather, time and light, and birds and fish. It shows you how these gardens were designed for dynamic viewing, to stimulate all the senses-acoustic, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, and visual.
This exquisite book is written in a style that will appeal to nonprofessionals as well as architects, landscape architects, and designers.
