Reinventing the Garden: Chaumont-Global Inspirations from the Loire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Loire valley is the home of the annual Chaumont Festival, which attracts the most innovative, experimental, and radical garden and landscape designers from around the world. Of international reputation and influence, the event is vitally important in shaping garden design. This book gathers together the best garden designs from the ten years of the festival's existence. The gardens are arranged by theme (such as Fusion Gardens or Outdoor Art) and illustrated with over 200 color images, including photographs especially commissioned for the festival as well as the designers' original plans and sketches. Engaging and thought-provoking commentaries explore the themes behind the gardens, their impact on the designers, and the public's reaction and interaction with these experimental ideas. The book includes works by an international selection of rising new designers, as well as world-famous artists such as Lynden B. Miller (USA), Fernando Caruncho (Spain), Peter Latz (Germany), Adriaan Geuze (Holland), and the Italian Land-I agency. Plant lists and plans provide practical support for those interested in adapting the ideas or creating their own gardens. For anyone interested in garden and landscape design, whether professional or amateur, this unique record of Chaumont's achievements will stimulate, inform, and inspire.

Book News Annotation:

Like Paris fashion shows, the innovative designs international garden designers show at the acclaimed Chaumont-sur-Loire garden festival may give consumers ideas to adopt. A French garden writer comments on the concepts and public reactions to some three dozen designs from recent festivals. Themes are global influences, biodiversity, art, storytelling, the garden-landscape link, and "cultivated kitsch." The book includes color photos and resources.
