Full Description

For landscape architects, the relationship between artificial and nature has always been ambiguous. Should the demoulding method be natural and hidden under the surface of nature, or should it highlight the strength of human technology? In Breathing Landscape, landscape is not meant to imitate nature or to highlight technology, but to give nature emotion and life.

Breathing Landscape is a spiritual creation of physical space for interaction between man and nature, a place of interactive experience from the external to the internal, and a sense of space that has profound extension. The emphasis is on the correlation of people, things, feelings and the environment in the physical space. For Breathing Landscape, the “external” is the natural integration and the “internal” is the interaction with people, and is the internal and external breathing of the human body and spirit. Breathing Landscape is an immeasurable property of nature, which is fascinating and leads to meditative and peaceful self-being. More importantly, it focuses not only on man and nature but also on the superimposition of man, nature and the world, the experience of flowing human life in the spatial environment.

There would be no landscape in the world unless there are humans. No matter where you live, you are closely related to the landscape. Through this book, the authors hope to create a pleasing and immersive interaction between nature and feelings. This emotional landscape creation method is reflected throughout the whole book.

Text in English and Chinese.
