Description

This lavish new book shows garden art in its most beautiful splendor.

Landscape architecture is a form of high art for Erik Dhont, who has brought both nuance and sensitivity to various sites. Playing with flowers, grasses, shrubs or trees, he creates unique spaces, structures and textures. His timeless green paradises which are the result of true craftsmanship, are deeply rooted in the European garden tradition. They stand for longevity, evolution, dreams, and life. In this second monograph, Dhont presents his creations from over the last twenty years, combining photographs with abstract drawings, colorful planting plans, and sculptural models that reflect on his artistic approach. Intimate views of seminal creations such as the garden of fashion designer Dries van Noten immerse one into Dhont’s creative and sensual universe.

ERIK DHONT (°1962, Brussels) is a landscape architect who runs an office out of Brussels for over 30 years. His portfolio includes manifold realizations such as gardens, farmyards, urban development projects, and landscape restorations, commissioned both by individuals and institutions from all over the world.
