In a series of vignettes chosen from her book, award-winning Connecticut landscape architect and author Susan Cohen reveals the specific—and often unexpected—design inspirations of landscape architects now working around the world, tracing each project from the initial spark of creativity through stunning completion. The projects include a roof garden at the Museum of Modern Art in New York inspired by a French film made in the 1950s, a drought-resistant landscape in California inspired by a Van Gogh painting, a campus plaza in Israel inspired by desert wadis, and a Shinto shrine garden in Japan designed by a Zen Buddhist priest.
