Avant gardeners : 50 visionaries of the contemporary landscape by Tim Richardson ( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the past decade, garden and landscape design has witnessed a burgeoning of new ideas. The leading edge of recent garden design has not only embraced the latest thinking in science and materials, but has also appropriated ideas from related disciplines, such as architecture and product design, redefining and blurring the borders of nature and the man-made in the process. Plants, too, have been the source of surprising new expressions in avant-gardens, even if many practitioners are suspicious of horticulture's importance. One indication of the rise in popularity - and controversy - of these gardens has been the growing number of conceptual garden festivals, which have become the premier international showcases for new ideas." "Avant Gardeners presents the fifty most exciting and innovative contemporary garden - and landscape - design practices from around the world, profiling the work of each designer through informative texts, photographs and plans. Topical essays explore the underlying principles of these highly individual approaches, and show how a rising generation has rejected the naturalistic tradition of Western garden design, favouring instead the influences of Modernism, Postmodernism, Pop Art and Land Art." "Tim Richardson, one of the world's leading garden and landscape critics, brings a broad base of knowledge and an engaging style to the subject. With over 100 projects, the book is an encyclopaedic look at the most advanced contemporary thinking in garden design and offers an inspirational archive for practitioners and enthusiasts - indeed for anyone who delights in the great outdoors."--BOOK JACKET

Recycling spaces : curating urban evolution : the work of Martha Schwartz Partners by Emily Waugh ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cities are constantly evolving: growing, shrinking, diversifying, sprawling, and densifying. Each phase of evolution brings a unique set of challenges to urban areas in deciding how to remain vital and healthy for long-term sustainability. One of the most important questions facing urban centers today is how to keep people attracted to live in, invest in, and participate in the city. Recycling Spaces focuses on these questions broadly through conversations with experts in the fields of landscape, economics, and urbanism, and specifically through the work of world-renowned landscape architectural office, Martha Schwartz Partners

Roberto Burle Marx : the lyrical landscape by Marta Iris Montero ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most influential landscape and garden designers of the twentieth century, Roberto Burle Marx has inspired generations of gardens around the world. His sweeping forms and painterly approach to planting were revolutionary when they first came to public attention in the 1930s, and many contemporary designs owe his vision a great debt." "Publications on Burle Marx have been few, despite his world renown. This book, the product of one of his most passionate admirers - herself a practicing landscape architect - is the first major publication in a decade. Before his death, the author worked closely with Burle Marx during the writing of this book, giving her unique insight into the life, ideas, and work that are outlined in the introduction. The core of the book is twenty-six projects, presented through plans - some redrawn from Marx's originals for the first time - specially commissioned photographs, planting schemes, and some of Burle Marx's own paintings. An extensive reference section includes an exhaustive chronology and bibliography." "This illustrated book demonstrates the sources of Roberto Burle Marx's reputation as one of the great landscape architects of the last century. At a time when landscape design is more lively and influential than ever, this tribute to an acknowledged master of modern design is destined to inspire gardens and landscape design for years to come."--BOOK JACKET

The vanguard landscapes and gardens of Martha Schwartz by Martha Schwartz ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most exciting and popular designers working in the United States, Martha Schwartz has almost single-handedly redefined the notion of landscape architecture. With her background in printmaking, the Boston-based Schwartz has brought an entirely new design language to a traditionally horticulture-oriented profession." "This is the complete monograph of Schwartz's corpus, some 32 works, mostly built, from the United States, Canada, Japan, Germany, Sweden, England and elsewhere. Projects are loosely grouped into themes and presented through breathtaking photographs, accessible drawings and plans, as well as elucidating texts written by a noted landscape critic, Tim Richardson. Interspersed between project families are essays written by Schwartz that give unique insight into her philosophy and her creative process, while provoking considerations about the human-made and natural world of the future." "The colorful, unconventional and wide-ranging nature of Schwartz's work has had a profound effect on the worlds of garden design, urbanism and landscape. It will appeal to professional designers and urban planners, as well as to a non-professional audience looking for inspiration."--BOOK JACKET
