Asian Studies Seminar : Bamboo or Banksia? Exploring plants, spaces and design for the Chinese garden in Perth Other events...
Classical scholar gardens of Suzhou date back to the Wu Kingdom (6BCE). Their designs had developed and matured by the Ming dynasty (1368 1644). Nine of these gardens are listed as UNESCO (United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation) World Heritage Sights which signify their importance and value. Many Chinese gardens have been built in recent years across the world, mimicking the design of the classical scholar gardens of Suzhou. A Chinese garden in Perth will make a significant contribution to local cultural life, enhance the multicultural society of Australia and educate visitors about Chinese arts and design. This paper demonstrates an avant-garde approach to making this a cultural and eco-rehabilitation project.
