Description
As much an architecture book as a gardening resource, radical garden designer Paul Cooper's guide eschews the traditional garden plot in favor of wildly creative spaces where plantings and natural landscape materials play a major part. Seen here in color photos and plan drawings are such sites as an arid garden of scrub and cactus around Antoine Predock's pyramidal Fuller House in Phoenix, where rocks seemingly tumble from the surrounding area into the cistern-like pool; and a conservatory on a tiny plot in London with industrial construction details and mirrored walls (as well as a mysterious sculpture sunken into the floor) that make it seem like the atrium of a large glass building.

"The New Tech Garden employs materials and methods quite unlike anything in the past, e.g., metals; plastics; glass, recycled or new; synthetic fabrics; and solar panels. Examining various sites, both public and private, throughout the world, Cooper provides a glimpse into radical designs for unconventional spaces that result in instant, mobile, and architectural gardens. What is most interesting about these gardens, which the book effectively illustrates, is the feeling of serenity and space afforded by even the most unconventional designs."Library Journal
