Unique Gardens

Unique Gardens

Sophie Barbaux

The book collects 70 unique gardens across the world. With unconventional landscaping and gardening approaches, these projects present unexpected, trend-setting green spaces in a refreshing way. Some of them were created by landscape architects or artists, some by creative homeowners themselves. These singular gardeners divert, metamorphose, and transcend the notion of garden, and even of nature, offering their unique vision, which is sometimes disconcerting, often utopian, even universal....They take the visitor, the passer-by, the neighbour to a disorienting elsewhere, where poetry and magic meet up but also where interaction, activism, and quetioning are encouraged, no matter what the scale.
