Piet Oudolf Landscape. Published by Thames and Hudson, this is a full-colour volume of nearly three. A showcase of work by landscape's pioneer of the titular "new perennial planting movement" or "new wave naturalism," Piet Oudolf: Landscapes in Landscapes surveys dozens of gardens – residential, commercial and institutional – made over more than thirty years.
Piet Oudolf, one of world's most visionary and influential landscape gardeners, is at the forefront of the New Perennial planting movement. Piet Oudolf is the only landscape designer to have been invited to design a garden for the Architecture Biennale in Venice. He consulted on planting designs for the Lurie Garden in Chicago's Millennium Park and the High Line in New York, both of which use a matrix of grasses to support a wide range of perennials.
His planting designs in Europe and the United States are masterful mixes of textures, colors, and seasonal highlights.
