Modeled on a courtyard in the Garden of the Master of the Fishing Nets, or Wang Shi Yuan in Chinese, in China's Suzhou city, the Astor Court or Ming Xuan was completed by a team of 26 Chinese craftsmen and opened to public in 1981. It is the first permanent cultural exchange between the United States and China. Although occupying only an area of some 400 square meters, the Court featured the quintessence of Suzhou gardens from zigzag corridors to carefully-cultivated rock structures and water features.
