在外觀牆面和窗戶設計。我們採用西方古典主義的設計。以幾何橫向的線條。表現出修道寧靜、穩定的氣息。古典主義認為建築和一切藝術均須有像數學一樣明確的規則和規範, 這也代表佛教的戒律,也是西方文化之一。

For the exterior wall and window, we used Western classical design. With geometric horizontal lines, it expresses a quiet, stable atmosphere. Classicism believes that architecture and all art must have rules and norms that are as clear as mathematics. This also represents Buddhist precepts, which is also one of the Western cultures.
