As opposed to architectural buildings, projects in this sector are therefore never quite finished or completely developed.

Gardens of Court and Country: English Design 1630-1730
Gardens of Court and Country provides the first comprehensive overview of the development of the English formal garden from 1630 to 1730.

Nicknamed ‘ the rose among the palms’ , the thousand-year-old city of Marrakesh is characterised by its pink-coloured pisé architecture and its deeply rooted tradition for gardens and green spaces.

Japanese Zen Gardens
The austere, enigmatic rock gardens of Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital, have never ceased to fascinate garden lovers. Weather-beaten rocks set in an expanse of white sand raked into geometric patterns challenge the idea of a garden as a space chiefly dedicated to the cultivation and appreciation of plants.

It explores the Zen characteristics of these gardens, and discusses the impact Zen Buddhism has had on the Japanese way of looking at the natural wor...
