Sculptures for the garden the slightly different exterior design
Everything in our history started that Herbert F. Johnson Museum of art at Cornell University Ithaca commissioned the construction of a new wing of the garden. The company, which has been set for that, Pei design dating back to 1973 to extend the classic I.M.. was Pei Cobb freed & partners.
The work of the designer was then later Marc P. Keane. He studied sculpture in Kyoto, Japan. He added the design by his gorgeous and unique magnetic stone formations.
Natural materials are the main characteristic of Japanese Gardens
You know “dry water policies” under the name rock formations that remind you of water currents,
Even if you have seen not the garden of the Museum so far! Nevertheless, you can draw inspiration from this example today!
All sculptures for the Garden have a Japanese character and therefore a special recognition.
The range of materials is easy. This is implemented in an organic manner. That he has a clear idea about how this must be managed on a “Japanese” style, is from his writings.
Karensansui-Garden: What perfect water imitation!
Peace and balance as the true nature
It is important to noted, he clearly distinguishes itself from all superficial North American interpretations of this character.
The world nature of his work, whether it is garden sculptures or any other area of the exterior design, is obvious. You also prove that many orders, which shall be. Soon he flies Lebanon after Beirut, to make the range of a ceiling there.
The imperfect, the natural
The contrasts in the design are made through the appropriate selection of materials
Landscape water concept without water
His garden sculptures were inspired by karesansui, a kind of dry garden design. It’s very weird. This involves landscaping with water. This is done but on a symbolic level. So, using no real water.
The stones are metaphorical skirts, called gneiss. The time has left deep traces in every tree. Also they have been covered by Lichen and MOSS.
The color palette is simple. It consists of the green of the plants and the horror of the stones.

Recurring geometric shapes that find their origin in the elements of nature
It makes real sense if you look at the landscaping in the context
Much like with minimalist design concepts, Keane uses the restrained design to accentuate certain gentle and quite delicate. These occur in the form of azaleas and only to their natural flowering period.
However, the whole looks very busy and varied. This is due the various nuances of Moss at the stones to.
A tree but represents the Central Garden sculpture. This is characterized by its irregular character.
Outdoor museum of art Herbert.F.Johnson can we admire the extraordinary work of Marc Keane
It all began with Keresansui-the source of inspiration for Keane
He did this too in a way, as it is usual in the land of the rising sun. You picked out trees which to express the personality of a person. Ever skulpturaler they fall out, the better for the design.
Talent, which showed in Ithaca through whose garden sculptures, Keane has obviously not gone unnoticed. He was awarded the Golden prize at the Italian contest A’design in Como. The national and international American architecture award are next prices, which he got.
In this Zen Garden is a great value placed on accuracy
A very old tradition that is appealing to tourists and designers
