Some brief overview of this book

Profiles of the fifty most exciting contemporary landscape design practices from around the world.

For the past decade, garden and landscape design have seen a burgeoning of new ideas on space and the experience of the outdoors. Recent garden plans have embraced the latest thinking in materials, science, and interactive design, and have appropriated ideas from related disciplines such as architecture and product design, redefining and blurring the borders of nature and the man-made.

With distinctive projects by each featured designer, this book gives an encyclopedic look at the most advanced thinking in garden design, offering a rich archive for practitioners and enthusiasts alike. In addition to practice profiles, there are thematic sections that explain the underlying principles of these innovators highly individual approaches to creating outdoor space. The books introduction explains how a rising generation has rejected the Romantic, naturalistic tradition of Western garden design, favoring instead the influences of Modernism, Postmodernism, Pop Art, and Land Art. 500+ color illustrations.
