Persian Gardens are among the world-famous gardens that can be considered from different dimensions. As a philosopher, the instructor will examine the interplay of Persian gardens' material (natural) and immaterial (cultural) aspects equally. As a result, he will begin with a short philology of the pertinent terms and then continue with the presentation of the material—space, trees, water, geometry—and immaterial elements—mindsets, philosophy, styles, symbols, meanings.
Fee: $49.00
