From the Inside Flap:

In & Out of Paris. Gardens of Secret Delights.

By Zahid Sardar .

Photographs by Marion Brenner.

When French queen Catherine de Medici created the Tuileries Palace and Garden outside Paris?s medieval walls, she began the unprecedented expansion and greening of one of the world?s great cities. Now Paris?s extraordinary public parks are rivaled only by secret courtyard gardens behind inscrutable nineteenth-century façades and miniature orchards of delight on hidden roof terraces. Among the more than 40 great and small projects within In & Out of Paris are fresh garden concepts in the city?s environs such as Meudon, Vaux-le-Vicomte, Versailles, Courances, and Méry-sur-Oise, which are otherwise all bastions of classic André Le Nôtre?style French gardens. Also discover the Paris gardens of celebrated artist Jean-Michel Othoniel and art aficionado Pierre Bergé, fashion designer Kenzo Takada?s authentic Japanese retreat in the Bastille, Australian couturier Martin Grant?s very tiny terrace in the Marais, visionary Mexican painter MariCarmen Hernandez?s Montmartre rooftop, American architect Michael Herrman?s perfect homage to Le Corbusier?s Champs-Élysées garden for bon vivant Charles de Beistegui, and the mur vegetals inside botanist Patrick Blanc?s living room. In & Out of Paris showcases top modern masters Louis Benech, Gilles Clément, Pascal Cribier, Christian Fournet, Camille Muller, Hugues Peuvergne, and Pierre-Alexandre Risser, who represent a new era of experiments, color, Zahid Sardar / Photographs by Marion Brenner and asymmetry in the Paris garden.
