What is he on about, you may ask ?
Fenestration is a Chinese term, used in Chinese gardens;
to explain products that are designed, to fill openings;
yet permit the passage of air, light and people.
It requires even the most " fanatic," amongst us, about authentic representation -
to sometimes take a step back
To take a measure, between Accessibility & Practicability and at the same time considering " people's " health and safety....
For, you can take the " manager," out of someone;
yet, you cannot take the " risk."
Just how good is Your " Open-Door," policy?
Apparently, one of the ways, it was believed to " keep out evil spirits," was to raise the sills in ting doorways.
Without wishing to be disrespectul to people's beliefs - we must also be considerate to people's needs.
In order to do so, we have to be accommodating, when we represent a culture.
Near the start of this Web site for Chinese Garden Scene;
we have a topic " Gardens for Youth " and it should equally be considered, throughout ( wherever humanly possible ) to be:
" Gardens for Veneration, for Generations, for All Abilities and for All Disabilities."
The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver, BC, have chosen to solve this paradox for representation;
" Let us keep searching for ways, to accommodate the needs of others."
" May the Chinese garden be demonstrative as a vital living environment and it's art be constantly, deeply and intimately connected with the daily needs of all human life."
