Description


The Midcentury Modern Landscape explores the origins of midcentury modern garden design for the home, revealing how designers at the time blurred the divisions between indoors and outdoors, creating gardens that were for living, a style that went on to inspire contemporary gardens around the world.

The Midcentury Modern Landscape is a fresh guide for those seeking bold approaches to redefine their outdoor space, or wishing to learn more about the history of mid century modern aesthetics.

Ethne Clarke is an award-winning journalist, former garden editor of Traditional Home, and contributing editor for House & Garden. Well-known as the author of a number of best-selling books on practical gardening, design and landscape history, she holds a Master of Philosophy from the faculty of Fine Art, De Montfort University, England. Her research has involved a close study of architectural history between the Arts and Crafts period and early Modernism, and this has been a guiding influence on the renovation of her house and garden in Colorado--a small midcentury modern ranch built in 1958.
