 Roberto Burle Marx Lectures: Landscape as Art and Urbanism edited by Gareth Doherty

Some of the most beautiful urban gardens in the world came from the mind of Roberto Burle Marx, an artist who used the natural world as his muse and medium. He felt that gardens could carry entire worlds within them, reflections of the gardener’s outlook on life, their past experiences, affections, triumphs and mistakes, and that humans need plants to experience true pleasure, to get back to themselves and to find inspiration. In his essay “The Garden as a Way of Life,” (featured in this book) he declared that the plant is “the most basic element of composition.”
