TOKYO, Sept. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 16, 2019, the forum of "Oriental Aesthetics and Humanities Architecture" was held in Tokyo, Japan. Under the background of promoting the concept of a globalized city, the organizer GO ART established a global exchange based on the Suzhou garden culture as a cultural envoy. The platform, together with professionals around the world, relevant enthusiasts and the general public, explores the trend of diversified cross-border cooperation while protecting and inheriting world heritage.

The forum is centered on the oriental aesthetic connection between Chinese and Japanese gardens. Chinese classical gardens are homologous to Japanese classical gardens. With the differences in geographical environment and the development of historical humanities, two different aesthetic styles of gardening were gradually formed. Suzhou is the world-famous "City of Gardens". In 1997 and 2000, nine Suzhou gardens were listed on the World Heritage List.

Being the outcome of human intelligence and a symbol of culture, gardening reflects the pursuit of harmony between art and nature, as well as the national temperament hidden under the art. When we look at all these different gardens, it is easy to tell that human beings are all the same when it comes to their love of nature and pursuit of beauty. Those are unrelated to race, culture and geographical location.

The transformation of Suzhou classical gardens from the private gardens in history to the modern urban public cultural space is not only an artistic expression in urban space, but also a spatial production of urban culture. The forum is also designed to inspire the public to think about how to shape the oriental aesthetics of the new era in the context of globalization.

Two Awards were given, "MOON YARD" received the Oriental Aesthetics International Landmark Award, "MIXC ONE·LUYANG·HEFEI" received the Urban Public Design Innovation Award. The panelists are: Shun Kawakami - Artist, Founder at artless Inc., Nachi Das - Wall Street Executive & Global Business Leader, Kaz Yoneda - Founding Principal at Bureau 0-1, Michel van Ackere - Associate at Maki and Associates. The guests attending the event were Shuhong Zhou, famous curator; Gianna Guo, co-founder of GO ART; Gongyi Yu, general manager of Rongxin "MOON YARD" Project; and Dan Ye, Marketing Manager of Rongxin "MOON YARD".
