Description - Mirei Shigemori by Christian Tschumi
Mirei Shigemori (1896-1975) is increasingly admired for his contemporary Japanese garden designs. Believing the garden had fallen into clich, Shigemori applied modernist shapes, colours and materials to create stunning avant-garde works that also celebrated the ancient Japanese gods and rituals. This book explores 10 major Shigemori works, using design/cultural analysis, garden plans and photographs.
