This book invites the reader to indulge in contemplation, to delight in the aesthetic and spiritual experience offered by gardens. Published on the occasion of an exhibition curated by Alicia Chillida, it explores the typical concepts of the Japanese garden and is inspired by the work of Mirei Shigemori, a renowned landscape architect, theorist, painter, and ikebana master, who advocated the concept of the “eternal modern” to achieve a timeless modernity. Works range from the 19th century to the present, and from traditional prints to the latest manga. Included are written contributions by Chantal Maillard, Beatriz Blanco, Mitsuaki Shigemori, and others.
