0 Reviews
Shunmyo Masuno has two callings: landscape architect and Zen priest. As an eighteenth-generation Zen priest at the temple in the remote suburbs of Yokohama, Japan; Masuno asserts that his two professions are intrinsically linked together and that it would be impossible to separate his landscape designs from his religion. Indeed; anyone experiencing his landscapes is struck by the simple, peaceful, Zen-like quality that they invoke. The ten landscapes in this book include projects for hotels, museums, and private landscapes. Masuno lives in Yokohama, Japan.
