sinopsis

In the 18th century the idea of the landscape garden, which had originated in England, spread all over Europe. The geometry of the Baroque park was abandoned in favour of a »natural« design. At the
same time the garden became the »land of illusion«: Chinese pagodas, Egyptian tombs and Turkish mosques, along with Gothic stables and Greek and Roman temples, formed a miniature world in which
distance mingled with the past.
For us, the significance of many of the buildings described in this book lies less in their aesthetic qualities than in the longings and fantasies they expressed, which are alive even today.
