ROBERTO BURLE MARX LECTURES: LANDSCAPE AS ART AND URBANISM. Ed. by Gareth Doherty. Lars Muller Publishers, Zurich, 2018. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 288 pp. with 71 ills. (65 col.). 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783037783795 In English.
Swiss binding. Publisher's description: Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) remains one of the leading landscape architects ever. The signifi cance of his landscape design lies in his use of abstract shapes that rarely employ symmetry, and his use of tropical, mainly Brazilian, fl ora. His distinctive and widely acclaimed work has been featured and referenced in numerous sources, yet few of Burle Marx's own words have been published. This book of previously unpublished lectures fi lls this void. The lectures, delivered on international speaking tours, address topics such as: 'The Garden as an Art in Living,' 'Gardens and Ecology,' and 'The Problem of Garden Lighting.' Their timely publication helps shed light on Burle Marx's distinctive style and ethos of landscape as a way of life.
