Abstract:

Chinese gardens are famous around the world, especially those found around Suzhou in Eastern China. Similarly, many people know about‘yin and yang’from popular culture, but do you know how such ideas inform the design of these famous gardens?

In this lecture, we’ll explore how yin-yang and other ideas from traditional Chinese wisdom are built into the garden’s design. You’ll get a sense of how the traditional Chinese worldview is brought to life within these gardens.
