Ten Landscapes: Stephen Stimson Associates [Paperback]
James Grayson Truelove (Author)
Each volume in the Ten Landscapes series presents a detailed, inside look at the outstanding work of the most innovative individual landscape garden designers working today. Each book features ten gardens by a single premier landscape designer. All ten landscapes are illustrated with beautiful photography, plans, drawings, sketches, and details of important garden elements. In addition, each project is accompanied by a discussion of the design concept, the designer/client relation and the creative process.
Stephen Stimson Associates Landscapes Architects is a design firm deeply rooted in planning, design and construction of landscape in all its forms: garden, street, park, campus, community, and region. The firm is renowned for exceeding design goals with regard to space and use of materials, and Stimson’s work often challenges design assumptions by using common materials in uncommon ways. Much of the firm’s work–from residential to corporate to institutional–responds to the elements and natural foundations of the northeastern coastal United States.
