DRAWING WITH TREES

“This is not a treatise on the art of gardens, nor a botany manual.
It is the small story of the experiences of an architect who draws with threes.
I wrote it as if it were a garden design.
And, like a garden, it’s never finished.
With nature you never stop.
Because a life is not enough to make a beautiful garden.”
The author talked on Friday, November 16, with Filippo Pagliani and Michele Rossi, founding architects of Park Associati. Drawing with Trees tells the wonderful “effort”, to imagine and build green spaces in places where the green is neglected, outraged, banned. From the moment in which the design idea is conceived, up to the planting of the plants, through the scenographic study of the right counterpoint of light and shadow, the book unfolds a very particular creative project: the genesis of living architectures.
