Piet Oudolf, Noel Kingsbury
Noorboek/HL Books, 2020 (heruitgave in paperback)
The garden and former nursery of Piet and Anja Oudolf in Hummelo, Gelderland, were a household name, and almost a place of pilgrimage, for the many international admirers of the garden and landscape architect. The combination of nursery and garden formed the basis of Oudolf’s unparalleled knowledge of plants and of his ability to experiment and innovate. Knowledge and experience that he applies in his world famous projects, such as the High Line in New York, and the “Oudolf Field” at the art gallery of Hauser & amp; Wirth in Somerset. This book describes the changing view on planting of gardens and public spaces over the past thirty-five years, on the basis of the garden and former nursery that Piet Oudolf built together with his wife Anja. It also gives a good picture of Oudolf’s road to world fame. This new edition has been expanded with recent projects in England, America, Germany and the Netherlands. Noel Kingsbury is a journalist and garden designer. He regularly gives lectures and workshops and in his work advocates a natural and sustainable approach to garden design and planting. He has over twenty-five books to his name, including five together with Piet Oudolf. IN DUTCH!
