About This Book

Among many aspects of the traditional architecture, this volume focuses primarily on the floral lattice, column, and the pavilion. The book distinguishes the avatamaska(flower garland) and kiye(techinical artistry) of the floral lattice that is considered as one of major characteristics of the Buddhist temple, remarks on the environment-friendly aspects of column, and examines beauty of exposure which pavilion builders try to achieve by deliberately ignoring the division between the inner and outer spaces. And all these features can be more fully appreciated, the book argues, when one considers them under the idea of Non-duality, the notion of Drifting from Zhuang Zi, and such a long-cherished concept among the Korean people as harmony.
