About this book
In a volume of impressive detail and opulent photography the British landscape architect and art historian Penelope Hill has portrayed the developments in contemporary European garden art. Presenting hundreds of gardens - some well-known, others unknown - from the whole of Europe, she succeeds in demonstrating the rich inventiveness, the originality, and the provocative force of a form of art which has attracted renewed interest in recent years. Hill shows how in the field of garden design, the use of new materials, the influence of ecology and art as well as town planning have brought about a break with tradition, and how new goals are emerging.

Summary to Architecture & Design:
It has spawned a recent rash of imitators, but many critics believe it to be the best. Now available in paperback, it’s also the most affordable.
"The text is filled with crisp, beautiful black- and -white photographs of interiors and exteriors as well as images of models and architectural drawings. The photographs are especially striking, as they were taken at or near the time of each structure’s completion, documenting its clean, striking presence. This is the most complete title available on this architect.” — Library Journal
"Historian Roman’s book fills a major void, for examination of this legacy has been strikingly meager. He provides a thoughtful, and engaging introduction... He offers many insights on the architect‘s ideas and methods. An elegant assortment of period photographs accompanies the text. This accomplished publication should have widespread appeal for all persons interested in modern architecture. Highly Recommended.” — CHOICE

Zusammenfassende Gedanken zu Architektur und Design zum Buch von "Román, Antonio : Eero Saarinen - An Architecture of Multiplicity " bedeuten auch das eigene Mitspiel und Mitleben in der Zeit, so, dass der Rezensent persönlich als Student - in Sandalen ohne Socken - in sein Büro auftauchte, um als Zeichenknecht mitzuarbeiten. Er musterte mich nicht unbedingt unwillig, doch so, dass er zur Zeit genug Personal hatte. Eero Saarinen gehört zu den Grossen des finnischen Konstruktivismus, dessen Ideen und Methoden sie folgten und verwirklichten - auch technoide Kälte vermittelnd, auch menschliche, die sie ausbreiteten .- im Gegensatz zu Alvar Aalto, der bei einem Interviewtermin den Rezensenten einem möglichen Auftraggeber vorzog und dessen Termin hinauszog. That's it.
