Garden Design in Denmark: G.N. Brandt and the Early Decades of the Twentieth Century


This book examines the traditions of garden art in Denmark in the early 1900's and traces outside influences such as the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain. It then reintroduces Gudmund Nyland Brandt to the English-speaking world of landscape architecture and garden design, and restores him to the important position he holds in the development of European landscape design in the 1920's that stretched to after the Second World War.

Many people are familiar with Brandt's Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen but are not aware of his wider work discussed in this intriguing book. What will be especially interesting to readers is the intellectual rigour and extent of analysis that Brandt employed, which will be a lesson to many a garden designer even today.
