Burle Marx

£55.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Unquestionably one of the most influential landscape and garden designers of the 20th century, the Brazilian Roberto Burle Marx has inspired generations of gardeners around the world. His sweeping forms and painterly approach to planting were revolutionary when they first came to public attention in the 1930s, and even today many contemporary designs owe his vision a great debt. This book, written by one of his most passionate admirers, is the first in almost a decade. A three-part introduction by the author considers his life, ideas and work. The core of the book is 26 projects presented in plans, specially commissioned photographs, planting schemes and in some cases Burle Marx's own paintings. An extensive reference section includes an exhaustive chronology and bibliography.
