Its Out !! -Landscape and Garden Design Sketch Book
- December 25, 2015
Tim Richardson is the rather brilliant and knowledgeable landscape writer from England; and has to his credit some of the most respected titles in Landscape Architecture. Many years back he did a book called Futurescapes ( Thames and Hudson) where he showcased 50 practices from across the globe that he had researched for a long time and believed were valuable to the definition of the profession. We were one of them.
And now is the delightful book again by Thames and Hudson, where he picks 37 practices across the globe and examines how these firms think and draw.
The introduction by Tim.
Its delightful to be amongst some names that we have heard or known about; like Gustafson Porter and Taylor-Cullity Lethlean, and also see names of people we have met or known in our life like Ken Smith, or Raymond Jungles and then see the many names of people we would really like to know.
But more importantly the book is an absolutely wonderful collection of sketches and illuminates the way the fantastic world of landscape design can be imagined.
It really is a must for the shelves of any designer.
