The Dutch landscape designer who has been the most important voice of a new movement in the world of gardening and more specifically in the use of grasses and perennial flowering plants. In over 30 years of career he has created hundreds of public and private gardens all over the world. Among the most memorable are the New York High Line, the Lurie Garden at Chicago’s Millennium Park, and the temporary installations at the Venice Biennale and at the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, but these are just a few of the extraordinary works of his prodigious career.
