Gardens Under Big Skies : Reimagining Outdoor Space, the Dutch Way
by Noel Kingsbury and Maayke de Ridder
There is something about the Netherlands that gets under your skin. Each time we visit, I come back wanting more. Yet it is so difficult to pin point what it is, the landscape itself is so artificial, everything is so neat, straight roads, straight rows of trees all planted at equal distances. Yet there is something about it I find almost addictive.
In this new book, a collaboration between Noel Kingsbury and Maayke de Ridder, they explore just that, how the Netherlands landscape, history and culture have given rise to such distinctive gardens and also demonstrate how a new generation of Dutch designers including Jacqueline van dear Kloet, Frank dear Lieden and Arian Baekeland, are reimagining outdoor space in such a revolutionary way.
A must read for anyone who is as entranced and in love with the Dutch and their way of gardening as we are.
