Pascal Cribier: on the trail of a gardener

workshop in the context of “Naturale inclinazione” 2018
, from

The work of French landscape designer Pascal Cribier (1953-2015), one of the most outstanding personalities in the contemporary European scene, was able to embody the continuous balance of past and present, a relationship that was one of the key elements guiding his most important projects, starting from that for the Tuileries garden in Paris.

In the first scheduled event, Hervé Brunon will give an account of his work and of his important legacy and will then introduce Elena Antoniolli who, in her turn, will present her research, which was carried out in the first half of 2018 thanks to one of the scholarships that the Foundation issues to young landscape designers.

The research, concerning the subject areaLandscape project– inspired by the Swedish landscape designer Sven Ingvar Andersson (1927-2007) – examined some personalities of contemporary landscape design, including indeed Cribier, by analysing the relationship between studies on historical gardens and contemporary design culture in their works.
