18,00 € inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versand
The artist house Villa Romana in Florence is surrounded by one and a half hectares of land. Over the past ten years, the landscape architecture firm atelier le balto has reinterpreted this garden, which was laid out at the end of the 20th century, in a processual manner and with the help of many helpers. more
The Non Garden Book Villa Romana wants to reproduce her actions in pictures and give what is called a garden its own materiality and temporality. It is a picture book that also contains numerous contributions and interventions by Villa Romana prizewinners. The pictures and drawings make it clear that the garden is a space for action in time. The work of atelier le balto started from the original vegetation and territorial zones, in order to transfer them into open physical and visual relations: to the observer, to the user, to the imagination, to the neighborhood inside and outside the property, to the limitations of the terrain and to the change of seasons. The work always remains an unfinished, natural growth that respects no boundaries. The book presentation will be accompanied by film screenings by Alvaro Urbano, Sophie Reinhold/Linda Spjut and Magda Typiak.
