Abstract:

"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."--Jacket.
