dc.description.abstract The critical question of this thesis is how Chinese values can affect modern urban landscape architecture. The definition of Chinese values includes the Chinese perception of spirit and space. Tai Ji, a traditional Chinese spirit, is essentially a metaphor for the creation of reality and the inclusion of all things. The Chinese conception of space is to use the invisible as a metaphor for the visible, and this is often reflected in the space of traditional Chinese architecture through suggestion or allegorisation. This concept of spirit and space is evident in Chinese landscape painting. In addition, traditional culture is also an essential part of Chinese values. History development has brought valuable wisdom and wealth to human beings. The introduction of these Chinese values into architecture through concepts, design methods and spatial forms is an important direction for the development of future Chinese architecture. China is a rapidly developing country, and the speed of its urban construction is essential to this development. But it is because of the demands of this rapid urbanisation that architecture has become progressively modular, and there is a proliferation of homogenous cities in China. However, as urbanisation continues, people's needs are becoming more diverse, no longer limited to economic development but to spiritual fulfilment too. The government has started to invest heavily in landscaping for urban development. Borrowing many successful Western landscape design ideas to meet the needs of urban greening quickly has been a beneficial approach but Chinese landscaping loses many of its cultural characteristics. Ways to integrate the advantages of Western design with Chinese values is an issue to be considered in landscape architecture. A city with complex historical factors and special architectural styles was chosen for the design project. The outcome is an artists’ community that will apply Chinese values to the concept, spatial approach and landscape design.
