Modern Tropical Garden Design Summary

Modern Tropical Garden Design by Made Wijaya

Designer and author Made Wijaya has been delighting us with his books and gardens for forty years. He is best known for his romantic Balinese garden designs, particularly his Bali resort work at such properties as the Bali Hyatt (1984), The Oberoi (1983), The Four Seasons Jimbaran (1990), The Amandari (1988) and for his books and films on the architecture and culture of Bali.

His modern gardens at the Wellington Mews Apartment in Mumbai (2004), his work with the best modern bungalow architects in Singapore during the 1990s and his design for the Asian Garden section of the Naples Botanical Garden in Florida (2006) are lesser known.

Since publication of Wijaya's book Tropical Garden Design, a new wave of modern gardens has gripped the tropical world - in particular, the tropical Asian world where Wijaya works and lives. This book is a stunning documentation of that new wave and of its historical antecedents.

Wijaya presents the work and design philosophies of the best modern tropical landscape designers over the past century, illustrated by images from the tropical garden world's best photographers, and dissects the various styles - from Brazilian modern, through Hawaiian to New Asian - that have influenced garden design in tropical Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Florida, Hawaii, India, Mauritius and Southeast Asia. He also offers invaluable guidance on practical matters such as water features, pavings, lighting, furniture and artworks.

Written in Wijaya's usual witty style, and with a winning mix of information and inspiration, this book will be seized on by owners and designers of all types of garden around the world.
