modern gardens

Designing gardens implies many skills, but above all creativity. Here you will find a selection of landscape architects that we believe will be of inspiration. Be they Australians like Paul Bangay, Chinese like Kongjian Yu, British like Dan Pearson or Italian like Patrizia Pozzi; ideas will come from all around the globe. We will sweep virtually across the world introducing you to talented garden designers who work locally or abroad. The criteria of selection is totally independent with direct links to individual websites so that you can have up to date information on projects. Discover Landscape architects that reinvent space, enhance the beauty of nature and create meeting places where man meets nature. Many are trend setters, others invent spectacular colour combinations with plants, some have a great sense of structure and a few include modern art. Every designer will suggest a garden to visit, a garden that has in turn inspired their work, a connection to the History of Garden Design that goes back centuries, far before it became a recognized profession.
