After the research of Feng Shui and Chinese culture,We develop our final idea.At the final day we presented our design ideas through the processes of research and analysis.The master plan of the park shows how these elements connected together and how could be used.Furthermore, we present the section of the plan and the perspectives drawings, which show clearly our park’s design by different angles. Finally, we receive a feedback from Dr H.David and Mr. F.Edward,which tell us the good and bad things for our process and design.

During my trip to Manchester China town, I found some interesting elements .The two entrances, which already exist to the car park are adopt the Chinese traditional architecture.Inspired by this architectural style,I took some photos and I sketch some elements,such us the roof design or the details of the structure.We try to connect these elements of the Chinese architectural style with the philosophy and culture of Chine.Our idea was a combination of these two , philosophy / culture and elements of the traditional Chinese architecture.

At the next meeting, we start to thinking about the design geometry,materials ,architectural elements and arrangements of the garden, based on the Chinese philosophy and culture. We agreed to connect 3 access points(2 main front entrances and the back one which connect the car park with the garden.The shape of the path was based on Ying & Yang philosophy,which connect a centre temple with the entrances.Fish bones, stones, grass and vegetation are some of the elements, which we are going to use to our project.Tai chi and relax zone will provided to the park.
