Photographer's Note

The construction of the first phase of the Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library & Garden has recently been completed. When all future phases are complete, The Huntington's Chinese Garden will encompass 12 acres with the pavilion complexes linked by "poetic views." Gracefully winding pathways will lead visitors in and around the gardens, inviting them to discover changing vistas and natural vignettes as they explore the garden from different vantage points.
Key materials will come from China, including the highly sculptural rocks from Tai Hu near Suzhou, handcrafted lattice windows, and roof tiles. The skilled artisans from China will ensure authenticity of construction in every detail.
