Wu Zixu built the ancient city of Suzhouaside Yangcheng Lake. The city now has a long history and is known as the ‘City of Gardens’ forits outstandinggarden art. Due to the unique natural conditions and the wealth of officials and people, the wind of garden creation in Suzhou began in the Spring and Autumn Period and has continued ever since.

项目介绍 Project Presentation
The demonstration area is located in the northwest corner of the project plot and consists of two parts: front and back. The front was built in a modern landscape style, functions as the sales hall display area;and the back was built in traditional style, as the model exhibition area. The total area of the back is about 2400 square meters, with about 1980 square meters being the landscape area. In the process of design, the designer considers the collision between modern and traditional styles repeatedly. Under the condition of satisfying the users' needs of modern life function, created a classical garden without losing the traditional charm.
The scenic spots of the whole garden are surrounded by water. Once in the back yard, standing on the platform, open water and semi-hidden garden buildings come into view. You can enjoy the beauty of the garden by visiting slowly along the water. The three model houses are located at the end of the bay, just able to view the garden through the window.Flowers and trees are set alongside to block the sight of other visitors.

化景为情，诗画入境Turn Landscape into Love, Integrating poetry and painting into the environment
The important difference between Chinese aesthetics and western aesthetics lies in the creation of artistic conception, the transformation of scenery into thoughts, the change of mentality into pictures, the implicit image, the deep accumulation of emotions, which is the special structure of traditional gardens. Since the Tang and Song dynasties, artistic conception has been combined with poetry and painting and transformed into an artistic spiritual space. Artistic conception is a harmonious space in which the image exists in the environment and the environment produces the image outside, and permeates the subject's emotions. The virtual and the real infiltrate each other and complement each other. It is a beautiful combination of space.
