Private Landscapes - Modernist Gardens in Southern California
In Private Landscapes, landscape architect Pamela Burton and interior designer Marie Botnick profile twenty significant gardens-and their accompanying houses-by the most celebrated architects of mid century modernism, including Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, A. Quincy Jones and John Lautner. Featuring Julius Shulman's iconic black-and-white photographs of the original gardens as well as Tim Street-Porter's crisp colour images of contemporary restorations and updates, Private Landscapes shows why these gardens continue to provide inspiration for gardeners and designers everywhere.
