A Chinese cemetery for the Winnipeg community, a response to the Feng-Shui concept
Lo, Joseph Yau Hing
This practicum explains the principles of an ideal Feng-shui for interment on a flat land region and the orientation of construction in relation to the site and nearby river course. Feng-shui is an important concern for most Chinese in terms of dwelling and interment. As there are no cemeteries in Winnipeg meeting this need, this practicum adopts Feng-shui principles as a design model, respecting Chinese culture in the Canadian context, for a Chinese Community cemetery in Winnipeg.
