Abstract
RESEARCH QUESTION: How can external objects based on the combination of eastern and western aesthetics be utilised in landscape design by photomontage? Art and landscape architecture have a historical and close relationship, and art works, such as painting and sculpture, can provide inspiration for landscape architecture. I believe that an inter-cultural design process could provide more solutions than an approach based on a single culture. Ancient Chinese landscape painting has a philosophy about living environments, which may be useful in New Zealand, but it should be combined with local aesthetic orientations. To achieve that goal, I will investigate New Zealand’s painting and art works, attempting to build connections between painting and landscape architecture. The same feeling while seeing the original art works and the resulting landscape architecture is the goal of this experiment, and that feeling is addressed by the perspective system. To explore the relationship between landscape and external art work, montage will be investigated as a method. My research supports evidence that landscape architecture could be influenced by and benefit from the exploration of multicultural art works.
