Chinese Garden Arts

Chinese gardens are designed to imitate nature - so unlike chinese architecture, chinese gardens are as asymmetrical as possible. The aim is to create a natural sense of flow, incorporating manmade elements such as bridges and pavilions in a manner that creates a sense of harmony between Man and Nature.
