Hide & Reveal Design Concepts

Many design concepts are used in Shinzen to create a unique experience for the viewer. As you travel down this shady loop near the lake you’ll experience the design concept of hide and reveal. Notice how the walkway loops in such a way that you cannot see what is around the next corner? As you wander down the path you find yourself in a dark, cool area with slight glimpses of the lake in the horizon. Curiosity propels you to travel towards the light. Finally you approach the last turn and voila! The lake is revealed. Throughout the Garden we can see examples of hide and reveal. This technique builds anticipation and suspense in the viewer.
