The New American Garden Gallery Guide

What's Out There: The New American Garden Gallery Guide

Wolfgang Oehme and James van Sweden revolutionized landscape architecture with the creation of the New American Garden, a type of garden characterized by large swaths of grasses and fields of perennials. Their style celebrated the seasonal splendor of the American meadow while promoting its inherent ecological, sustainable, aesthetic, and ornamental values. According to van Sweden: “It is vigorous and audacious, and it vividly blends the natural and the cultivated.”

This 68-page gallery guide, created to accompany the traveling photographic exhibition The New American Garden: The Landscape Architecture of Oehme, van Sweden that debuted at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. on October 17, 2015, features 52 newly commissioned and archival images of significant private gardens, along with important civic and commercial projects.
