The Wirtz Gardens III
Photography by Bertrand Limbour
Wirtz International, 2017
The Wirtz Gardens III is a continuation of the books I and II, edited in 2003 and reedited 2 times after. It contains 30 gardens, a mixture of private, public and corporate projects in Belgium, Switzerland, Japan, the USA, France and England. For the first time, private projects in the USA and Switzerland are shown, gardens which enchant by their beautiful setting, their scale or their exclusiveness. Unusual projects like the cloister’s gardens of the Hauterive Abbey (Switzerland) or the Haute Couture fashion show stage set for Dior in 2012 or even more, a secluded Japanese garden with view to Mount Fuji will surprise the reader. For the first time, American work is shown, represented by 4 private projects.
Every garden is accompanied, as it was before, by its plan and a brief text. Photography by Bertrand Limbour.
