The planetary garden : and other writings by Gilles Clément( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Celebrated landscape architect Gilles Clement may be best known for his public parks in Paris, including the Parc Andre Citroen and the garden of the Musee du Quai Branly, but he describes himself as a gardener. To care for and cultivate a plot of land, a capable gardener must observe in order to act and work with, rather than against, the natural ecosystem of the garden. In this sense, he suggests, we should think of the entire planet as a garden, and ourselves as its keepers, responsible for the care of its complexity and diversity of life. The Planetary Garden is an environmental manifesto that outlines Clement's interpretation of the laws that govern the natural world and the principles that should guide our stewardship of the global garden of Earth. These are among the tenets of a humanist ecology, which posits that the natural world and humankind cannot be understood as separate from one another. This philosophy forms a thread that is woven through the accompanying essays of this volume. Brought together and translated into English for the first time, these three texts make a powerful statement about the nature of the world and humanity's place within it

Manifesto del terzo paesaggio by Gilles Clément( Book )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La obra pretende conceptualizar sobre la no-actuación humana en el paisaje, o mejor dicho, sobre la incertidumbre como factor de desarrollo del paisaje. Se trata de refugios para la diversidad, pueden ser residuos, reservas primarias o reservas administradas. Se extienden por todo el planeta, algunas están interconectadas. La evolución del tercer paisaje no se puede predecir, ni programar con un calendario establecido, es fruto de las contínuas adaptaciones al medio. El Tercer Paisaje es por tanto pura potencia

Il giardino in movimento : da la Vallée al giardino planetario by Gilles Clément( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La historia del jardín ha estado tradicionalmente marcada por un discurso basado en el orden visual y el control que ejerce el hombre sobre las especies vegetales. En este célebre ensayo, Gilles Clément se aleja de forma radical de este enfoque y aporta una de las reflexiones contemporáneas sobre el paisaje y los jardines más interesantes de la disciplina. El jardín en movimiento sostiene que los jardines y el paisaje no son espacios estáticos que deben controlarse, sino lugares donde la naturaleza debe seguir su curso, donde las especies vegetales deben instalarse de forma espontánea y desarrollarse libremente de modo que la experiencia estética surja de la contemplación de los propios procesos espontáneos de sucesión biológica. La labor del jardinero ya no consiste en domesticar la naturaleza mediante la imposición de un punto de vista predeterminado y estricto, sino en conocer las especies y sus comportamientos, observar las dinámicas naturales y la corriente biológica que anima el lugar para orientar y explotar al máximo sus características naturales"--Gustavo Gili
Silent beauties : photographs from the 1920s by Leendert Blok( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leendert Blok experimented with color photography and the use of the panoramic format. In the twenties, the Dutch photographer worked in close collaboration with flower producers, providing color prints and autochromes for the display catalogues of the various species they cultivated. Blok captured flowers like objects of desire, using the Autochrome Lumière technique. For Blok, photography relates above all to the gaze. Muted tones and soft bronze hues reveal a timeless world of flora, in which corolla, petals, and buds are sublimated by chiaroscuro. The flowers stand out against a plain dark background, alluding to the famous vanitas of the Dutch Golden Age. Tulips, dahlias, daffodils, irises, hyacinths, and peonies reveal themselves in all their glorious diversity. The photographs of Leendert Blok are reminiscent of botanists' slides of yore, immersing us in the immanence of plant life, in which each flower becomes sculpture"--Publisher's description
A big garden by Gilles Clément( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in French and English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wonderfully insightful and brilliantly illustrated book on gardens and gardeners will provide hours of absorbing fun while introducing young readers to the joys of planning, planting, and harvesting. In vibrant watercolors Vincent Grave shows us how there's something happening every month in the Big Garden. Renowned landscape designer Gilles Clement's lyrical text gently teaches young readers not only what's involved in planning a garden, but how plants, insects, and humans interact all year long to make the garden thrive. Along the way, we witness a forest of mushrooms, the miracle of eggs, and the incredible universe found in a single flower. In every picture, tiny gardeners busy themselves among the leaves, seeds, and earth. Fascinating, heartfelt, and elegantly produced, this book celebrates the deep connection between humans and nature"--Publisher's description

Environ(ne)ment : manières d'agir pour demain = Approaches for tomorrow by Gilles Clément( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in French and English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As it is no longer possible to consider the environment merely in terms of its potential for exploitation, it becomes increasingly difficult to determine the status of human beings with respect to nature. Today we are under pressure to reconsider our approach to growth, development, and comfort - which raises the spectre of energy consumption and the future of the earth's biodiversity. To address these issues requires a change of perspective - literally, an about-face - which takes the environment, and not human demands on our planetary resources, as the starting point for reflection. This volume presents the work of French landscape designer and gardener Gilles Clement and Swiss architect Philippe Rahm as two tactical approaches to the environment for tomorrow which focus not on technological or aesthetic problems, but rather ethical ones."--BOOK JACKET
