Juan Grimm is the father of landscape architecture in Chile, and one of South America’s most important landscape architects. Working mainly with local flora, he creates breathtakingly new landscape textures; to date he has designed and built nearly 2,500 acres of garden works, as well as private and public parks in Chile, Argentina, Peru and Uruguay—including the gardens of a Benedictine abbey and of the Bahá’í temple in Santiago.
Featuring drawings, photographs, interviews and extensive essays, this book presents Grimm’s body of work, his methods, his sources of inspiration and his artistic aims. Selected examples—ranging from small gardens to large parks—illustrate Grimm’s development over the course of his 30-year career.
