Tuesday, May 5, 2020
Japanese gardens are rightly recognized as some of the most beautifully curated public landscapes in the world. What qualities have earned them that reputation? How are these spaces utilized and enjoyed by people in Japan? This session will virtually explore several of the most common types of Japanese garden spaces and talk about the design elements that make time spent in each one enjoyable. This session will also introduce participants to an excellent local example, the stroll-style Japanese garden located at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, and discuss varieties of Japanese plants and trees capable of thriving in north Texas.
About the presenter: Dr. Mindy Landeck is an assistant professor of East Asian Studies at Austin College, a private liberal arts college located in Sherman, Texas. Her research engages Japanese language and literature, with a particular focus on the social role of traditional artforms from the 17th century to the present.
