THE GARDEN OF MYSTERY: Call for Entries to the Design Competition for the 3rd BFU International Garden-making Festival 2020
Bamboo owns its unique beauty with the tall and straight body lines, graceful branches and leaves, no wonder that numerous rich and thought-provoking spaces throughout the ages were created with bamboo. As early as in the Song dynasty, Sima Guang’s Dule Garden was shaped with bamboo, which created both the mysterious space like “lining along the road like a corridor” and the quiet and comfortable garden described as “bamboos crossing with each other forming the cover like a room”.
The 3rd BFU International Garden-making Festival will be hosted by Beijing Forestry University from September to October 2020. The Festival aims to promote a craftsmanship spirit and cultivate landscape architectural students’ creativity through drawings, models and practices, the festival will provide an opportunity to integrate material construction and artistic expression. We will invite relevant well-known organizations to co-host the Garden Festival.
