Peter Walker Minimalist Gardens
Essay and Text by Leah Levy

The work of an acclaimed landscape architect is celebrated in this vibrant book. Known particularly for his brilliant collaborations with Frank Gehry, Arata Isozaki, Helmut Jahn, Ricardo Legorreta, and other eminent architects, Walker's decades of teaching and practice place him in the forefront of landscape artists working in the modernist tradition.

"Peter Walker creates modernist landscapes that are influenced by classical formal European gardens and traditional Japanese gardens. Minimalist gardens are not everbody's cup of tea. However, Peter Walker's designs make use of colour, texture, light and form to produce a sensuous kind of minimalism. The photographs really capture the patterns, beauty and wit that runs through his work. Walker orders wood and water, light and shadow, plants and trees, rocks and stones to create landscapes that function like an expansive sculpture. In a brief essay Peter Walker writes about art and gardens that have inspired his own work. The last section of the book gives descriptions and the plans of all the gardens covered in this book. "
