Brazilian Roberto Burle Marx was indisputably one of the greatest garden and landscape architects of the twentieth century. His distinctive style, incorporating bold, abstract patterns and native flora, still influences garden and landscape projects around the world and left a legacy of exciting contemporary designers.
Presented with superb photographs of over thirty new gardens and landscapes across the country, from the coast to the hills, from the cities to the jungle, New Brazilian Gardens offers an exciting overview of a wealth of creative designers working in idioms and styles that are varied and individual, while acknowledging the genius of Burle Marx.
Dazzling swimming pools, serene urban escapes, stark minimalist hardscaping or exuberant planting – the projects illustrate the great diversity of Brazil’s gardens today, but also incorporate ideas that can be translated to any country.
New Brazilian Gardens is for professional gardeners, amateurs and garden lovers everywhere.
