+ Descripción del producto

From Europe to South America, from Japan to the United States, this extraordinarily varied survey covers the work of garden and landscape designers whose names are familiar to both lovers and scholars of the modern garden, including Robinson, Jekyll, Jensen, Farrand, Sessions, Mawson, Church, Sřrensen, and Jellicoe. It traces the revolutionary change brought about in the postwar period by the Harvard Rebels—Eckbo, Rose, and Kiley—and examines the impact of Noguchi, Burle Marx, and Barragán, among others, as well as the powerful international influence of Scandinavian landscape architects and designers. The garden city is also given attention, from its beginnings in late Victorian Britain, through the Greenbelt towns in the American Midwest, to the contemporary regeneration of urban centers worldwide.
