Phaidon contemporary garden book

Phaidon, perhaps my favourite publisher, has recently come out with a great little modern garden design book, aptly named The Contemporary Garden.

It catalogues 100 gardens from the 1920’s to the present day, moves through early works such as David Hosack’s Rockefeller Center Roof Garden (1933) to today’s conceptual creations such as Tony Heywood’s Split (2003), and spans the globe covering leading designers such as Roberto Burle-Marx (Brazil), Tadao Ando (Japan), Adriaan Geuze (Netherlands), and Fernando Caruncho (Spain).

  1. Can’t wait to check this book out! Burle-Marx is has been very inspiring to me in my design work–I love the contemporary art influence in his designs.
