Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patrick Blanc, an artist with a green thumb, has created dozens of his admired botanical tapestries in public and private spaces around the world, including the Marithé & François Girbaud boutique in Manhattan; the Jean Nouvel-designed Quai Branly Museum in Paris; the aquarium in Genoa; the Siam Paragon mall in Bangkok; and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. In this luscious, oversize, all-color book, he explains how to create plant walls using more than one thousand plants, drawing on his observation of natural milieus, his technique of growing on vertical surfaces, his savoir faire, and his passion for plants.

Book News Annotation:

Research scientist and garden architect Blanc (French National Center for Scientific Research) meticulously creates lush "vertical gardens" for clients that have included the Caia Forum Museum in Madrid and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. In this abundantly illustrated volume, part informative and part display, he first walks readers through the naturally-occurring plant and landscape phenomena that inspire his work. Later he details how he plans, installs, and maintains his vertical urban gardens, which can exceed 100 feet. The final section features Blanc's sites around the world. This volume contains no index. Oversize: 10.5x13". Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
