Item description for Gardens of the World: Two Thousand Years of Garden Design by Jean-Paul Pigeat...

A truly magnificent panorama of garden design for professional and designers and garden travelers alike. Internationally renowned expert Jean-Paul Pigeat sets out to examine both the enduring styles and the bold new trends in garden design. Pigeat juxtaposes traditional and contemporary garden designs, exploring their themes as expressions of a culture's artistic creativity and social structure. Pigeat retraces his steps through famous and lesser-known gardens around the world. From the ostentatious design of Versailles, where the layout reflects power, to the inspired innovation of the Eden Project in England, which aims to teach visitors about the environment, to the cutting-edge Gas Works Park in Seattle, Washington, which reclaimed a former industrial site. Lavishly illustrated, with a lush format and informative text this truly magnificent panorama of garden design will meet the expectations of professional and designers and garden travelers alike.
Jean-Paul Pigeat is the director of the International Conservatory for Gardening and Landscaping in Chaumont-sur-Loire (France), where he also organizes the prestigious annual Chaumont garden festival.

Gardens of the World is fascinating history of garden design. Each chapter examines a modern garden and then explores its historical and classical roots. The history and significance of water gardens is the focus of the first chapter. A contemporary water garden in France at Mery-sur-Oise is shown in great photographic detail. Then the author traces the history of water gardens using a wide variety of examples such as Generalife garden in Grenada Spain, Villa d'Este in Italy, and the Barragan Water gardens in Mexico City. He states that gardeners have always borrowed ideas from each other. Their ultimate expression of these ideas tempered by the restraints of their own climate, location, history and plant availability.
