Beyond Wild: Gardens and Landscapes by Raymond Jungles

Gardens and Landscapes by Raymond Jungles

Raymond Jungles; foreword by Michael Van Valkenburgh

Monograph on Raymond Jungles, a landscape architect based in Miami known for innovative but timeless design and a commitment to ethical stewardship of the land.

For more than 30 years, Raymond Jungles has generated design solutions that respond to surrounding natural systems while restoring nature’s balance and harmony on a micro-scale. His completed gardens personify timelessness and beauty, with verdant spaces that entice participation and soothe the psyche.

This monograph, the third to focus on his work, will present 25 projects, both completed and in progress. Among the featured works are major landscapes surrounding luxury residential complexes as well as lush private gardens. Highlights include the restoration of the famed interior garden by the revered landscape architect Dan Kiley at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York; a landscape to evoke the work of legendary Brazilian designer Roberto Burle Marx at the New York Botanical Garden, and the Florida Garden at the Naples Botanical Garden.
