Chinese gardening has a long history. As an important part of it, rockery also develops with the development of gardens, forming a unique and perfect gardening system with strong national style and local characteristics, and achieving high artistic achievements.
1. The plastic arts of rockery is a kind of plastic arts. It relies on the charm of the image to infect the viewers. In the process of application, the shapes of rockery are constantly enriched and innovated. There are many shapes that are not found in traditional gardens, such as the landscape of Kunming World Expo Garden. At the same time, modern technology and crafts should also be used in landscape design. Such as the combination of spray technology to show the mountains and mountains bathing landscape.
2. The scale of rockery, its service object and use mode determine the scale and characteristics of garden space. Private gardens are generally small in scale, and the partition and enclosure of rockery buildings make the space of rockery more limited. Even the Royal gardens, which represent the artistic achievements of rockery, are still in a relatively narrow space, and the distance to appreciate rockery is relatively short. Therefore, the scale of traditional rockery is small. Modern urban parks opened the prelude to the development of modern gardens. Citizen-oriented urban parks usually have large land use and large spatial scale. Although small-scale rockery is also widely used in modern gardens, it adapts to the open characteristics of modern gardens, and large-scale exaggerated rockery landscape also appears in modern gardens.
3. The style of the rockery. The change of the shape and scale of the rockery also brought about the change of the style of the rockery. Simple shape, general outline, meticulous natural texture and appropriate scale are more in harmony with the style of modern gardens. Especially in modern gardens, the simple sculpture-like shape can be more integrated with the modern style of garden space. In the exploration of modern style, there is also an abstract landscape. The most representative works are the landscapes in the front square of the Great Hall of Portland, USA. These landscapes make the open space of this modern city charming.
