The Invention of the Western Garden: The History of An Idea
A beautiful and inspirational book that will appeal to those who love beautiful things. Architecture, garden design, history and the very concept of a garden - those who appreciate these things will love this very interesting book. The invention of the Western garden has ancient roots. Myths, semantics and ideas have blended to give us what we understand today to be the Western garden. We need to look back for its origins in Mesopotamia and in Hebrew and Greek languages. Hebrew gives us the word 'gan'eden' which has merged with the idea of 'salvation'. Ancient Greek gives us the word 'paradeisos' and this idea has evolved with interpretations of wonder and magnificence. Thus through time the concept of the 'garden' in the Western world as 'a paradise on earth' has developed and many cultures have worked to recreate just such a paradise working with the soil, plants and weather of our world. Throughout time European man has cultivated fields and forests and spent hours trying to create in an infinite number of ways a 'paradise on earth'. Why to this day is it still so fulfilling to take a space and try to create a perfect garden? What drives our desire to see our environment so transformed? This book provides some answers as it explores how the Western garden has evolved. There are examples, plans and pictures of gardens great and small in Europe throughout history. The predominance of the Renaissance Italian Garden (as exemplified in the Garden of Belvedere by Donato Bramante in the Vatican) spread throughout Italy and beyond to France, Germany, Bavaria, Austria, Bohemia, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal until the time of Louis XIVth when Versailles, Le Tuileries and Fountainbleau were created as symbols of royal power. It continued to spread until the 18th century, when the ideas of Lancelot Brown and William Kent (that the garden encompassed the whole landscape) took hold and the English came to lead the world in landscape gardening - witness Kew Gardens, Kensington Gardens, Badminton House, Chiswick among others. In the 19th Century gardens such as Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace and Twickenham (Thames) continues the trend until suddenly there was the concept of the public garden - a garden for everyone - and then the American garden where gardens were created on the edge of the urban world. Abandoned Viaduct in Paris - the High Line in New York. And so to this day when the widening of the concept of garden to that of landscape is now internationally recognised by the culture of the urban planning.
