The Scandinavian Garden

The Scandinavian Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The architectural, sculptural and poetic Scandinavian style that treats gardens as outdoor rooms. Over 200 photos and plans.

Synopsis:

Scandinavian landscape and garden design is original, sophisticated and poetic. Powerfully architectural, with an emphasis on geometry and sculpture, there is an evocative and romantic tradition. The Scandinavian enthusiasm for outdoor living, making the most of the endless summer daylight hours, has meant that garden designers are particularly innovative in treating gardens as outdoor rooms or extensions of the house.

Synopsis:

This work focuses on the best gardens in the Scandinavian region, both those produced by amateur gardeners and the gardens designed by world-famous landscape architects such as Carl Theodor Sorensen and Andreas Bruun. They include elegant town gardens and country, woodland and coastal gardens.
