Chen Congzhou might not be a familiar name, but many of the Chinese classical gardens you see now such as the Humble Administrator's Garden, the Lingering Garden and the Yu Garden were saved by him. In the architecture world, Liang Sicheng from northern China and Chen Congzhou from southern China are equally renowned. In addition to the study of gardens and ancient buildings, Chen Congzhou was also an expert on calligraphy, painting, poetry, and Kun Opera. Some people say that he was an “eclecticist", but he was a master in every realm he touched on.
