Juan Grimm’s most beautiful gardens in Chile

Juan Grimm is considered the father of landscape architecture in Chile. His designs persistently underscore the sublimities of nature and incorporate the environments surrounding them. Although he works mainly with local flora, he creates breathtakingly new landscape textures. As South America’s most important landscape architect, he has designed and built nearly one thousand hectares of garden, as well as private and public parks in Chile, Argentina, Peru, and Uruguay, including the gardens of the Bahá’í Temple in Santiago and of a Benedictine abbey.

Featuring drawings, photographs, interviews, and extensive companion essays, this book presents Grimm’s body of work, his methods, his sources of inspiration, and his artistic aims. Selected examples, ranging from small gardens to large parks, illustrate Grimm’s development over the course of thirty years. At the same time, it is not only Grimm’s work that is on display, but the model of Chilean landscape architecture of which his work is exemplary.
