The influence of Japanese gardens on contemporary gardens

  • / “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism, Bucharest, Romania


This year we celebrate the birth of Constantin Brancusi. One of his pupils was Isamu Noguchi, sculptor and landscape architect. At the landscape projects advised by late Dieter Kienast I was suggested to consult this architecture for the own projects. These projects were the garden of Tate gallery in London (garden realised by Dieter Kienast) and the utopic project Paradise garden. Paradise garden is an oriental concept. In the latter research I consulted Japanese gardens in Europe (Germany, Monaco, Italy, Austria, Hungary and Romania) to learn the elements of these gardens and to illustrate the presentation, as well as literature, including the analyse of these gardens outside Japan.
