About this book

Language: Multilingual in English, French, German, and Spanish

Ever since the birth of architecture the domestic garden has played a key role in defining a home. The large, ostentatious gardens of the nobility, now converted into urban parks, were echoed on a smaller scale by attempts to reproduce a piece of nature and incorporate it into a structured living environment. A series of innovative interpretations of the domestic landscape has led to an enormous range of patios, terraces and gardens, all of which are illustrated here in hundreds of photographs (with floor plans included) that enable the reader to investigate the modern function and form of these spaces all over the world. With contributions from renowned architects and landscape gardeners, this book serves as a useful introduction to the ideas that have inspired the design of the modern garden and to the forms and materials that have made it unique.
