Gardens in the 20th century reach back into the Victorian era and forward into the age of Land Art. This survey, from Europe to South America, and Japan to the US, takes in many familiar designers including Robinson, Jekyll, Jensen, Farrand, Sessions, Mawson, Church, Sorenson and Jellicoe. The book traces the revolutionary post-war period - the Harvard rebels, Eckbo, Rose and Kily; Noguchi, Burle Marx and Barragan - and the powerful influence of the Scandinavian landscape designers. The garden city is given close attention, from late Victorian Britain, through the Greenbelt Towns in the American Midwest, to the latest regeneration of urban centres worldwide. Notable artists and architects also feature here: Monet, Le Corbusier, Mondrian, Wright, Mies van der Rohe and Gaudi among others. Land artists have brought landscape and the garden into the 21st century and include Robert Smithson and Kathryn Gustafson in the US, and Richard Long, Andy Goldsworthy and Ian Hamilton Finlay in the UK.
