Japanese Gardens

Posted June 08, 2007

Funded, in part, by a Freeman Foundation grant, the primary goal of the Japanese Garden Project is to create an in-depth resource for students composed of information on the history, aesthetic character, and philosophical context of the Japanese Garden. This site is used by students at both the introductory and advanced stages of the study of Japanese art and culture and should also be of use to students enrolled in a variety of subject areas relating to Asia. A secondary goal is to provide a well-illustrated resource for the greater community of scholars. In a later phase, another goal is to provide a tool that will enable the students to design their own gardens.
