Paradise Garden Workshop │ Aberdeen University, Aberdeen (UK) │ 2016

Paradise Garden Workshop 15, Feb 2016
The University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland

The Paradise Garden Workshop envisages as a way to discuss people’s notions towards environment, and the idea of perfect nature. In this workshop, the participants defined the qualities of their ideal environment -- the ‘paradise’ -- and using plants, stones, soil and materials found in the Cruickshank Botanic Garden (the university botanical garden) to present/ built those qualities in their miniature gardens. Through the process of creating an artificial- natural environment, we looked back at the history of eastern (Chinese and Japanese) and western landscape/ garden making, shared our idea about nature and landscape making/ designing and reflected on today's approaches in environmental design.

The Paradise Garden Workshop was made possible by the kind support of the The University of Aberdeen's anthropology department, the "Knowing From the Inside" project ( and the Cruickshank Botanic Garden.
