Nature and Architecture

Here in the Yaowang retreat of Sun Simiao (see photo for 10 April), are two interesting examples of the symbiosis of nature and architecture. The first photo shows a tree which has over the centuries grown through a temple; and the second, below, shows an intriguing arch formed by a man-made shape and the tree shape.
