Design Talk: Gardens for the Senses
Javier Mariategui will talk about his approach to garden design and some of the gardens featured in his book, Gardens for the Senses: The Spanish Gardens of Javier Mariategui. He considers each garden to be a work of art, and as in any work of art, its language is led by intuition and sensations. He loves order and disorder, straight lines and curved, the wild chaos of nature as well as strict geometrical patterns, varied and single species of plants, color and absence of color. Water is an essential element of many of Javier’s designs, and he enjoys bringing all of the elements of a garden together until they harmonize.
