This book examines the enclosed garden as an expression of the ‘genius loci’. How can this can be made accessible in the contemporary metropolitan landscape? Including analysis of the spatial, sensorial, and narrative craft patterns of metropolitan gardens ranging from traditional Japanese masterpieces to contemporary European landscape architecture.
The metropolitan garden, as a defined space in the continuous metropolitan field, provides an alternative way to access the landscape horizon, references to nature, and connections to the underlying landscape, providing a new perspective on two quintessential themes: nature and place.
