Announcing the 4th International Symposium on Japanese Gardens

Last Updated: 1/11/2004

The 4th International Symposium on Japanese Gardens: Evolution of Japanese Gardens through Adaptation to Place will be held in Seattle Washington August 28-Sept 2, 2004. Contemporary Japanese Gardens face many critical issues: the foremost being how to preserve and maintain historical gardens. The second is how to adapt the spirit of the Japanese Garden to the pressures of modernization: its space for gardens is diminishing and people’s beliefs, thoughts and tastes on the Japanese Garden have changed and continue to change . Opportunities for engaging discussions will be enhanced by the following questions:
  • For Japanese Gardens overseas, what adaptations and techniques of garden design and creation are needed?
  • How have established Japanese gardens abroad provided stewardship, continuity and spirit?
  • What innovations exemplify the process of adaptations?
  • What makes a garden Japanese?

Sponsored by the Puget Sound Japanese Garden Society and the International Association of Japanese Gardens.
