Mirei Shigemori - Rebel in the Garden: Modern Japanese Landscape Architecture.
SHIGEMORI. Tschumi, Christian.
Mirei Shigemori - Rebel in the Garden: Modern Japanese Landscape Architecture.
Mirei Shigemori decisively shaped the development of Japanese landscape architecture in the twentieth century. He founded the Kyoto Garden Society in 1932 and in 1939 designed his own first masterwork, the garden of the main hall of Tofuku-ji Temple. Between then and his death in 1975, he went on to design 240 gardens throughout Japan. All of his gardens are distinguished by the fact that they honor tradition while at the same time - through their openness to Western modernity - they free themselves from its weight and develop a language of their own. The first part of the book will deal with Shigemori's life and influences, including his interest in ikebana and tea ceremonies. The second part will offer detailed presentations of some seventeen different gardens. Photographs by Christian Lichtenberg.
