AN OUTDOOR ICON

Back in the‭ '‬90s when I travelled to Paris on business‭, ‬I was immediately struck by the outdoor umbrellas that line the streets‭ ‬and balconies‭, ‬shielding the coffee tables in the heat of the day‭. ‬Coming from China this was not something that I had seen before on such a scale‭. ‬These simple umbrellas seemed to me to have a profound affect on the street-scape‭, ‬adding a whole other dimension that brought it to life‭. ‬I came to realise that these umbrellas were intricately linked to the culture of this place‮!‬Xthe‭ ‬lifestyles of the people that live here and the aesthetic character that is unique to Paris‮!‬Xand indeed much of Europe‭. ‬

FENG SHUI FOR COURTYARDS

In ancient China, the practice of fengshui was considered so important to wellbeing that even the poorest families would put aside funds to pay a fengshui master. Traditionally, Chinese homes were designed around the courtyard, which was believed to facilitate the flow of qi and connect heaven, earth and the people. As large numbers of Australians move into smaller, inner-city dwellings, the courtyard garden is becoming increasingly important as a means to commune with nature.
