A Space Called a Garden: Noguchi’s Landscapes

Renowned academic and landscape and architecture critic Marc Treib explores Isamu Noguchi’s landscape designs.

Isamu Noguchi regarded landscape design as a spatial art, and from his earliest projects in the 1930s through the works of his later maturity, this belief guided the conception and construction of a number of remarkable places that he called gardens. Object, space, and landform cohered in these landscapes, the most outstanding of which will provide the subject for this illustrated talk.

Marc Treib, Professor of Architecture Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, is a historian and critic of landscape and architecture who has published widely on modern and historical subjects in the United States, Japan, and Scandinavia.

The Noguchi talks programme is supported by the U.S. Embassy London
