'Arranged in thematic chapters, Interiorscapes shows how gardens within buildings have become a notable feature of Post Modernist architecture - with innovative designs ranging from peaceful inner sanctuaries for city dwellers and open-to-the-sky enclosed garden rooms to interior gardens as essential elements in 'green' architecture, creating eco-friendly living and working environments in offices, hospitals and hotels. Other indoor garden variations include hanging and 'mid-air' gardens, and inside gardens where new technology has enabled contemporary designers to create 21st-century versions of atriums or winter gardens. Some of today's most innovative garden and landscape designers, such as Dan Kiley, John Portman, Martha Schwartz, Tadao Ando, and Georg Penker, are now working indoors, proving that interior landscape design is becoming as important as its outdoor cousin.' 'Interiorscapes is an up-to-date examination of the developing art of creating gardens in interior spaces. Looking at both private and public gardens, the book shows how many of the world's most exciting architects, and garden and landscape designers are responding to the needs of modern living by creating gardens that make it difficult to tell where nature ends and architecture begins.'--BOOK JACKET.
