About

Speaker: Dr Alison Hardie

The fascination with Chinese gardens has lasted for centuries. Miniature worlds built for pleasure, escape, or to impress, they reflect the ideological harmony and balance that could exist between man and nature.

Dr Hardie will explain the historical development of Chinese gardens, relating this to parallel or contrasting developments in European garden history, along with the different types of Chinese gardens. The cosmological ideas and design principles underlying the layout and features of Chinese gardens will also be explored, as well as the social significance and uses of Chinese gardens, particularly in the late imperial period.
