Dame Sylvia Crowe (1901-1997), was a pioneer in the field of landscape design, writing a book that encompasses both a fascinating history of design in gardens and a stimulating study of the need for these principles to be applied to the contemporary landscape. This book is Garden Design . Crowe takes the reader through the recurring manifestations of the principles of design in such famous gardens as the Alhambra in Spain, the Villa Lante in Italy, Vaux-le-Vicomte in France and Stowe in England and on to the works of Roberto Burle Marx, Lawrence Halprin and Sven Hermelin. While this book is essential reading for all landscape architects and planners, Dame Sylvia's grasp of and relish for her subject make it compulsive reading for anyone newly awakened to the excitement and pleasure of garden design.'
