Event: Marc Peter Keane will speak at The Japanese Garden Training Center

Intern Intern - Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Renowned landscape architect and Stone Bridge Press author Marc Peter Keane will be speaking about Japanese garden aesthetics and his new book, Japanese Garden Notes, at The Japanese Garden Training Center in Portland on August 26th.

Here's a snippet of what they have to say about Keane's new book:

"Japanese Garden Notes approaches the complex story of Japanese gardens in six sections: intent and time, space and passage, function and art, architecture, garden ornaments, and details. Instead of approaching gardens by type and historical era, Keane explores the philosophies and techniques that embody the spirit of Japanese gardens, with short, poetic passages supported by his own beautifully detailed images."
