A truly magnificent panorama of garden design for professional and designers and garden travelers alike. Internationally renowned expert Jean-Paul Pigeat sets out to examine both the enduring styles and the bold new trends in garden design. Pigeat juxtaposes traditional and contemporary garden designs, exploring their themes as expressions of a culture’s artistic creativity and social structure. Pigeat retraces his steps through famous and lesser-known gardens around the world. From the ostentatious design of Versailles, where the layout reflects power, to the inspired innovation of the Eden Project in England, which aims to teach visitors about the environment, to the cutting-edge Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington, which reclaimed a former industrial site. Lavishly illustrated, with a lush format and informative text this truly magnificent panorama of garden design will meet the expectations of professional and designers and garden travelers alike.
