Modern Garden Design
By

Rating
Garden design in the twentieth century ranges from Victorian-era examples to the age of Land Art. This span results in an extraordinarily varied survey--from Europe to South America, from Japan to the United States--including work by garden and landscape designers whose names are familiar to both lovers and scholars of the modern garden: Robinson, Jekyll, Jensen, Farrand, Sessions, Mawson, Church, Sorensen, and Jellicoe.Janet Waymark traces the revolutionary changes brought about in the postwar period by the Harvard Rebels--Eckbo, Rose, and Kiley--and examines the impact of Noguchi, Burle Marx, Barragan, and others, as well as the powerful international influence of Scandinavian landscape architects and designers. The garden city is also given close attention, from its beginnings in late Victorian Britain, through the Greenbelt Towns in the American Midwest, to the latest regeneration of urban centers worldwide. A long line of artists and architects of international renown have carned a place in the history of the modern garden: Monet, Le Corbusier, Mondrian, Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and Gaudi, among others. Land artists, such as Michael Heizer, Robert Smithson, Patricia Johanson, and Kathryn Gustafson in America and Richard Long, Andy Goldsworthy, and lan Hamilton Finlay in the UK, have brought new ways of thinking about landscape and the garden into the twenty-first century.
