Hledání rajských zahrad / In Search of Paradise Gardens
The book is a sequel to the successful series of picture books by professor Ivar Otruba, the leading expert on Czech landscape architecture who keeps familiarising the readers with gardens of various regions and cultures of the world. This time, the author and his loyal photographer traveled to the Middle East and to the regions with traces of the rich Moorish culture (northern Africa and south of France, Spain, and Portugal). They found gardens with unique genius loci there, resembling even the Garden of Eden, the symbol of beauty, satisfaction, but also expulsion.
