9784805314258: Japanese Garden Design

Filled with gorgeous photographs, this book explains the theory, history, and intricacies of Japanese gardening.

The creation of a Japanese garden combines respect for nature with adherence to simple principles of aesthetics and structure. In Japanese Garden Design, landscape architect Marc Peter Keane presents the history and development of the classical metaphors that underlie all Japanese gardens.

Keane describes the influences of Confucian, Shinto and Buddhist principles that have linked poetry and philosophy to the tangible metaphor of the garden in Japanese culture. Creative inspiration is found in the prehistoric origin of Japanese concepts of nature; the gardens of Heian aristocrats; the world-renowned Zen garden, or rock garden; the tea garden; courtyard garden; and stroll garden.

Detailed explanations of basic design concepts identify and interpret the symbolism of various garden forms and demonstrate these principles in use today in Japanese landscape architecture.

Topics include:

  • Design Principles
  • Design Techniques
  • Design Elements
  • Godspirit in Nature
  • Poetry in Paradise
  • The Art of Emptiness
  • Spiritual Passage
  • Private Niches
  • A Collector's Park

About the Author:

Marc Peter Keane, a licensed landscape architect and garden designer, came to Japan in 1985, and since then has been creating and building gardens for companies, temples, and private individuals. He teaches a design workshop as an adjunct professor at the Kyoto University of Art and Design, and is a staff member of the Research Center for Japanese Garden Art there. He has traveled and lectured widely on traditional and classical approaches to Japanese garden design and landscaping. He lives in Ithaca, NY.

Haruzo Ohashi, born in 1927, is a freelance photographer based in Tokyo and is considered one of Japan's leading garden photographers. Among his many publications are Famous Gardens in Japan, Gardens of Japanese History, Vol. 35, and Japanese Garden, Traditional Forms and Drawings, Vol. 5. He is a member of the Japan Professional Photographers Society.

From Library Journal:

A landscape architect and garden designer working in Japan, Keane here offers a history of the Japanese garden over 20 centuries, showing how society, politics, religion, art, and the tea ceremony have contributed to the structure and elements of these beautiful retreats. He also includes chapters on design principles and techniques, explaining, for instance, how individual aspects such as rock, sand, plants, and bridges embody the symbolism of the gardens. This comprehensive book includes not only excellent full-color photography but detailed plans of the various types of gardens. An extensive glossary, a bibliography of books in English and Japanese, and numerous maps are also offered. The text concludes with a timetable mapping the evolution of the garden alongside events in Japanese culture and world history.
