While some gardens are built with a respect towards tradition, others forge new, innovative ways to carve out a space for respite in nature. They can reflect the priorities of modern society, bring new ideas and materials into the world, or seek the reinvention of ancient cultures. In The Making of Place John Dixon Hunt explores the variety of gardens and landscapes found throughout the world today. From towering sculptures strewn amidst green grass to hilly trails crowded with runners, Hunt offers a unique look at the history and makeup of both frequented and hidden gardens. The modern botanical gardens, small parks, university campuses and vernacular gardens the author examines are not centralized, but in fact showcase the differences between cultures and countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the United States, China and Australia. The Making of Place offers an accessible tour of modern garden landscapes that gives non-designers as well as specialists a new view of the created outdoor world around them.The book will appeal to all those interested in the history and significance of the modern garden and landscape, as well as specialists in the field of garden history and design.
