Books on the International Garden Festival

NEW - 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.

Published in 2007, the book Hybrids - Reshaping the Contemporary Garden in Métis is an overview of the first 7 editions of the Festival with contributions by 22 designers who participated in the event.

​The books are available through our Online Store.
