Hummelo: A Journey Through a Plantsman's Life
Author: Piet Oudolf, Noel Kingsbury
An expanded paperback edition of the highly successful Hummelo, Piet Oudolf's personal account of his celebrated career in the context of the evolution of his own garden.
Piet Oudolf is best known for his now-iconic designs for the High Line in New York City and Millennium Park in Chicago. Hummelo, his own garden in The Netherlands, serves as his personal design and plant propagation laboratory, and is where he has honed his aesthetic and created new varieties of plants for over three decades. Kingsbury's engaging text charts how the garden of one of the world's best-known and most-loved plantsmen has evolved, and gives frank assessments of his experiments that have gone both well and awry. A new concluding chapter adds descriptions of current major projects, including the Hauser & Wirth garden in Somerset, UK, Belle Isle in Detroit, the Vitra Campus Garden in Switzerland, the Singer Museum in Holland, the garden for Noma restaurant in Denmark, and the garden at Maggie's Cancer centre in London. Oudolf's collaboration with other designers and a discussion of the more technical side of his designs will add a new dimension to the text.
