Eric Arthur Gallery, 230 College Street



The publication Experimenting Landscapes: Testing the Limits of the Garden by Emily Waugh was launched in October at the Frankfurt Book Fair by Birkhäuser. Experimenting Landscapes: Testing the Limits of the Garden focuses on the Métis International Garden Festival in Québec, Canada, which has presented more than 150 temporary gardens at the cutting edge of garden design and environmental art since 2000. Despite its remote location, the Festival has attracted more than 1 million visitors to experience the work of both emerging design practices and renowned designers such as Diana Balmori, Claude Cormier, Ken Smith, Snøhetta, Topotek 1 or Michael Van Valkenburgh.

Alexander Reford, director of the International Garden Festival and Emily Waugh, author, will make a brief presentation of their book at 6.30 pm. 

Launch price of book: $60 EACH or $50 each for 2 copies

The book is also available for purchase on the online store of the Gardens:
