Gardens in the City of Suzhou
4. Gentle Wave Pavilion
The Hill-Viewing Tower at the Gentle Wave Pavilion in the City of Suzhou.
First built in 1044 AD, the garden is the oldest of the existing Suzhou classical gardens. The outer part of the double corridor is over the canal's edge, while the other open to the central hill. Latticed windows on the wall supply the spatial link between the scenery inside and outside the garden, which is the typical device of "borrowed views."On to Page 5 Back to Page 3
