Temporary Gardens - by Raffaella Sini (Paperback)
about this item
The last few years have seen a surge in temporary gardens. The flexibility, ephemerality and new challenges of this instillation type have made non-permanent landscapes a creative and stimulating testing ground for designers. In this book, Raffaella Sini explores some of the theory, narratives and strategies employed in over 50 worldwide temporary garden case studies ranging from urban guerrilla gardening to garden festivals. By using this short-term format, designers can invent, trial and experiment in a condensed experience of landscape, creating some of the most exciting innovations in contemporary landscape design. Inspirational reading for designers and students alike.
