WPC: Curves

Windows and gates are important architectural features of Chinese garden. Moon gate is a traditional architectural element, and they are in various shapes.

The moon gate on each side of the pavilion gives different views of the garden. When you are looking through the gate, the gate becomes a moon window:

    • The moon gate gives a small perspective of the garden when you are looking through the gate from a distance, then you are pleasantly surprised when you walk through the gate. Maybe, that was the purpose. Glad you like it, Meredith.
