Thanks Xiamen Urban Environment Design&Engineering Co.,ltd for authorizing the publication of the project on mooool, Text description provided by Xiamen Urban Environment Design&Engineering Co.,ltd.
UEDE：The project is an important witness to the exchange between Xiamen and Trier. It lies at the commanding height of Tier City of Germany, with key roads connecting the city to its east. It is endowed with a good foundation from the open vision of the area, the unobstructed visual corridor and an omnidirectional viewing interface. The openness of German side is also a precondition for the fulfillment of the design.
The design attempts to explore more possibilities of the public landscape.The oriental philosophical thought of inclusiveness and modesty as the design philosophy, runs through the process of design.Therefore the site was fully respected and the existing garden paths, platforms, green fences and structures. were fully preserved.

The base lies within the Petris Park with the exhibition area of Trier National Garden (designer park) to its northwest. In the context of a strong integration of the nature and humanistic spirits, the project itself responds to the characteristic actively. The preserving of broad recreational greenbelt highlights the understanding of the character of an urban park, which is also a natural transition of Patrice Park.

▼尊重场地 Respecting the site
▼呼应场地 Echo with the surroundings
The charm of eastern landscapes was blended naturally in a abstract approach. Screens are built with handmade red bricks,porcelain paintings, copper root sculptures which present Xiamen,(Xiamen in Chinese means the door of a mansion) The screens can become an independent landscape and exchange with local landscapes via their hollow space. From the open space in the area, tourists can fully experence the vastness of the surrounding environment.

The outlook of Chinese Taoists on the universe and life is reflected through Xiamen original stone . The relations of the three stones are a metaphor of the origin of all things as depicted in Tao Teh Ching, “Out of Tao, one is born; out of one, two; out of two, three; out of three, the created universe”.The three kinds of linear space formed by the green fences and crude stones are semi-open and semi-closed. The pattern that is closed in south and north and open in east and west makes the tourists introverted and contemplate.

The project also creates space for visitors to meditate.This area is an integration of stone array and green fences. The landscape stone array is open in space, but introverted in character. It diverts the attention from the tourists to their feet. They walk along the “stream” at their feet towards the center of the stone array step by step, and take a seat on the stone. During the Introspective meditation the tourists begin to observe themselves and thus comprehend the thoughts of Zen. They are not thinking of the life, but reflecting on themselves. This process is a point of connection between Buddhism and Taoism as well as the terminal point of the collision between Eastern and Western cultures–the human.

The project was completed jointly by the Chinese side and the German side and received enthusiastic support from the local people.They also sent in hot drinks and greeting cards during the construction.

The design blends the charm of Eastern landscapes into a Western garden, which reflects the Oriental philosophical spirit of “inclusiveness and co-existence” and the outlook of Chinese Taoists on the universe and life and achieves an integration and collision of Eastern and Western cultures.The project has received warm support from local residents. After its completion, the project has naturally blended into Petris Park and added an element to Petris Park, providing a characteristic public space for local residents.
