In Pictures: Avant Gardeners by Tim Richardson

An inside look into the secrets of the world’s top landscape architects

Avant Gardeners takes a look at fifty exciting contemporary landscape designers including Claude Cormier, Monika Gora, Mario Schjetan, Ken Smith, Martha Schwartz and West 8.

Tim Richardson, former landscape editor at Wallpaper*, presents a valuable archive of the most innovative thinking in modern garden design and shows how traditonal gardening has been influenced by modernism, pop art and land art.

Profiles of the designers and glossy case-studies illustrate visionary examples of approaches to the future of landscaping including sculptural elements, installations, play grounds and alternative planting to enhance these outdoor environments.
