Topic: Ginkakuji


  
  Japanese Architecture: Ginkakuji temple, Kyoto
Ginkakuji is one of the outstanding temples of the Muromachi era (1338-1573).
Perhaps one reason that Ginkakuji makes such a strong impression on the visitor is that the site engages the eye with a limited number of forms that constantly change alignment with one another as the visitor strolls through the landscape.
The genius of Ginkakuji is the integration of these elements into a memorable experience that engages the visitor and encourages him or her to explore the site from a variety of angles.
