dc.description.abstract The Classical Chinese landscape design owns a high reputation with its distinctive style around the world. It embodies the integration of Chinese philosophy, aesthetics, and Shan Shui culture. In contemporary age, Chinese landscape designers are facing the challenge of inheriting and creating Chinese-styled landscape design in a modern way. This practicum seeks to draw from the traditional Chinese painter's works, theories, and garden design principles and apply these learnings to my design practice. I aim to investigate how Chinese painting principles and traditional garden principles can inform garden design in Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Furthermore, I intend to address the theoretical and practical links between landscape and painting and discover new ways of creating modern Chinese landscape design. en_US
