Feast for the Senses at Lan Su Portland

Lan Su is an amazing Suzhou style garden built by Chinese artisans in the middle of Portland. All of the building materials such as the stone and teak were imported from China. Lan Su replicates noble life of 16th century China. The garden is designed so that not every aspect is revealed at once but must be discovered “room” by “room.” Doorways and windows form views inside views creating the illusion of infinity and a feast for the senses.
