Gardens in the twentieth century reach back into the Victorian era and forward into the age of Land Art. Modern Garden Design traces the revolutionary postwar period - the Harvard rebels, Eckbo, Rose and Kiley; Noguchi, Burle Marx and Barragan - and the powerful influence of the Scandinavian landscape designers.
"'As a contribution to the literature of garden and landscape design history, Modern Garden Design is an invaluable addition. Waymark informs, educates and connects... a volume to enjoy and to inspire' - Landscape Design"
