Research On The Cookie Design Applied With The Image of The Lin Family Mansion And Garden
The Lin Family Mansion and Garden
Hailed the greatest garden in northern Taiwan, the Banqiao Lin Ben Yuan Family Mansion and Garden has an exceptionally rich cultural heritage. A distillation of the centuries-old development of architectural design and gardening art in Taiwan, the Garden boasts excellent craftsmanship and is remarkable for its exquisite ornaments. Nowadays, these architectural ornaments, carrying auspicious implications, have been integrated into souvenir items that visitors to the Garden can take home. Such souvenirs, both educational and decorative, have helped to pass down architectural traditions while drawing the Garden closer to people’s lives. Following the effort to revive tradition through cultural commodities, this research intends to design souvenir cookies that integrate the ornamental patterns employed in the Garden’s structure. It is hoped that this new souvenir item will provide a higher product value. Previous studies have indicated that Japanese people have been adept at combining local images with cultural commodities. But in their practices, the patterns on the souvenir items are not adapted; they are usually exactly the same with the original patterns, thus lacking variations. In light of this, this research aims to redesign and restructure the various patterns taken from the Garden’s ornaments, giving them new forms, and use the new patterns in the souvenir cookies. To achieve this, the Garden’s architectural ornaments were analyzed and classified by methods of field study, image analysis, and focused interviews; then, restructure of the patterns were carried out based on the analyses. Moreover, according to focused interviews with six visitors to the Garden, they would place a high value on the diversity, practicality, and creativity of a souvenir item. They also responded that a souvenir item’s aesthetic value would be more important than its educational value. Based on these opinions, therefore, ornaments that carry auspicious implications were mainly used in the design of the cookies. Founded on the idea of “multiplied auspiciousness,” various ornamental patterns employed in the architecture of the Garden were restructured and combined together. With the combinations, the new patterns were therefore endowed with multiple auspicious implications. The shape of the cookies drew inspirations from images with which visitors were most impressed, and the cookies’ patterns were designed based on principles of symmetry and balance. It is anticipated that these souvenir cookies, representative of the Garden’s architectural designs, would help people better understand the ornaments’ auspicious implications while inspiring them to appreciate and cherish this invaluable local culture.
