Description


The Belgian landscape architect's adventures in the European garden tradition over the past 20 years

Belgian landscape architect Erik Dhont (born 1962) embraces all the sensuousness of nature in his unique designs. His timeless green paradises are the result of a craft that is deeply rooted in European garden tradition, emphasizing longevity and evolution among flowers, grasses, shrubs and trees.

The second monograph to explore Dhont's impressive oeuvre, this volume focuses on his creations from the past 20 years, combining photographs with abstract drawings, colorful plans for plant placement and sculptural models. It provides documentation for seminal creations such as the fairytale garden of fashion designer Dries van Noten in the Belgian countryside and the contemplative grounds of the Mus e Picasso in Paris. Readers are able to fully immerse themselves in Dhont's universe of design that merges sophistication and grandeur with the delicate beauty of nature.
