title Measuring the Perceptive Intricacy of the Chinese Scholar Garden
source P. Janssen, P. Loh, A. Raonic, M. A. Schnabel (eds.), Protocols, Flows, and Glitches - Proceedings of the 22nd CAADRIA Conference, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China, 5-8 April 2017, pp. 335-344
summary The carefully orchestrated relationship between view and movement forms a core composition principle of Chinese scholar gardens to create poetic depth. We focus on one characteristic case study to examine the intricate spatial relationships between what is visible and what is accessible from the garden visitor's perspective. We examine the garden layout through a quantitative approach based on Visibility Graph Analysis. We identify a certain congruence between visibility and accessibility patterns, and propose that a network of strategically distributed overview spaces is employed throughout the garden to counterbalance tensions generated from disjunction between visibility and accessibility. The paper offers new insights into how quantifiable aspects of the garden can be used to generate qualitative perceptions of elegant restraint and compositional intricacy.
