JIAN Garden

This plan adopts the idea of Karesansui to present a simplified Chinese garden without mountains and water.

The streamline of this courtyard interprets the traditional spatial sequence of the traditional Siheyuan.The sentence in Su Dongpo’s poem “One can make the food without meat, but he can not live without bamboo” expressed the requirement on living space in ancient times.

Across the southeast gate, walking through the decorated door, people could access the space. Behind the Jeongbang, visitors could find the backyard. After entering the glass gate, visitors could access to a space called “bamboo voice” and, on the left, the yard ”bamboo shadow”. The main yard is named “bamboo garden” and there is also a backyard, called “bamboo veranda”.
