New Nordic Gardens Scandinavian Landscape Design Annika Zetterman 50
The Nordic countries are admired for their modern design sophistication, but their contemporary gardens and landscapes are far less well known. Against a high-latitude backdrop of deep winters, long summer days and raking light, the Scandinavian countries – each in its distinct manner – have produced particular elegant while robust responses to planting, landscaping and the relationship between home and garden. This survey presents the best gardens to have been produced in the region over the past ten years. Organized by themes that encapsulate the special ambience and lifestyle of the Scandinavian countries – Simplicity, Silence, Fragility, Nakedness, Attunement, Boldness, Openness and Care – each garden is presented through images and texts explaining its unique aspects and describing its regional characteristics. Featuring the most inspiring examples in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland, this fresh publication brings new ideas for creating modern outdoor spaces – no matter where you live.
