What people are saying:

Most of the gardens in China are private homes. While visiting the gardens, imagine the scenes of the owners' lives. The advantages of the garden are mentioned by many: the landscape is beautiful, the area is large, the rockery/pool has its own characteristics. But the downsides are obvious: the house feels cramped, almost all in a corner, which may facilitate communication between family members, but the layout feels a bit oppressive and gloomy. The visit was at 2:3 pm when the sun was shining, but the rooms were dark, whether it was a study or a bedroom, and it seemed that there was no feeling of being in such a room. Think of some old Chinese buildings that I have seen before, it seems that there are problems with lighting, almost all three are solid walls (why not open the window on the wall? Is it technical or conceptual?), only the door side of the sun came in, in this study, reading, in the daylight also have to light? (After going to Heyuan the next day, there was a deeper understanding of the lighting, the rooms were almost bright and transparent between the rooms, and of course the building was later, absorbing all the more advanced architectural ideas)

Additional Information

Introduction

Geyuan Garden was built in the Qing Dynasty on the site of the former Shouzhi Garden of the Ming Dynasty. At the time, the garden was planted with bamboo. Because the bamboo leaves were shaped like the Chinese character for “Ge”, the garden was thus called “Ge Garden.” The four rockeries in the garden are very unique; after making it around the garden, it’s as if the visitor has experienced spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Geyuan Garden is not large and can be divided into three areas: the northern bamboo viewing area, the central flower garden, and the southern residential area. Compared with other traditional Chinese gardens, the essence of Geyuan Garden lies in the art of the rockeries with the theme of the four seasons. In addition to the rockeries, walking in the northern bamboo forest is a very pleasant experience. Even during hot summer days, walking in the green bamboo forest often feels quite cool.
