Event Details

One of the most important points on Japanese Gardens is to stand stones. Metaphorically, stones are mountains or islands in the gardens. On some gardens, stones represent the center of the universe. Japanese Gardens through the role of the stones will be introduced by showing images.

About the speaker: Takaya Kurimoto is a registered landscape architect and a principal of Penguin Environmental Design L.L.C (www.pedarch.com). Born in Osaka, Japan, Takaya started off studying the philosophy and history of Japanese gardens very early in his career at Kyoto University, Japan. One of his projects was a set of stone gardens for the “Tea Culture of Japan” exhibition held at the Yale Art Gallery in 2009. He completed Master of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University in 1999. Before joining PED in 2008, he was a landscape architect for Towers|Golde and worked on university and commercial projects for nine years. His major works there include the Yale University Pierson & Davenport College Courtyard Renovations.
