Today, artists, sculptors, designers, architects, and gardeners explore age-old materials, skills, and sites to produce extraordinary landscape art that celebrates life in this multifaceted region. Each work here, whether in France, Greece, Italy, Morocco, or Spain, observes the logic of place as determined by climate, geology, flora and fauna, architecture

Inspiring and joyful designs from France, Morocco, Italy, Greece, and Spain: an essential companion for anyone interested in landscape design, gardens, and art.

Human beings have been transforming Mediterranean landscapes into art for at least 30,000 years. Millennia of human negotiations with the land prove that to “tread lightly” on the earth need not be at odds with our interface with nature.

Today’s landscape architects, designers, land artists, sculptors, and gardeners are taking inspiration from age-old materials, skills, and sites to produce landscape designs and art that celebrate living in this multifaceted region. All involve a strongly graphic vision of the landscape; are site-generated; and observe the logic of place as determined by climate, geology, flora and fauna, architecture, and land use.

Contemporary landscape designers and land artists from Nicole de Vésian to Fernando Caruncho, Heidi Gildemeister to Paolo Pejrone, Andy Goldsworthy to Gilles Clément, and Jacqueline Morabito to Ian Hamilton Finlay are featured.

Makes me want to return to see gardens there all over again.

Just got this yesterday and had a quick spin through the photos. Oh boy! I'm a budget-driven DIY'er and find a lot of the beautiful garden design elements I saw could easily be adapted to my one-woman garden show. I usually don't buy "picture" books without the see inside option but took a chance. Lovely book.

I got this book for the photos of one amazing landscape designer (who name now escapes me) and was disappointed to realize that there were only a few photos of his work. I am less interested in some of the others. Its not a bad book, but not a 'must have' either...at least for me!

Not much for photos in this book. I was hoping for more physical examples of built work of contemporary Mediterranean landscapes.
