I would try that source for Descombes. To tell you the true, I am not so good memorizing names of designers. I have some books that shown great-innovative projects. But I do not spend so much time acknowledging the author's name. So maybe I have seen some of those designer's work that you kindly mentioned to me. But thanks for those names, as soon as I get a chance today, I would research some of their work.
Indeed you were so lucky with the Murase chance you got. :) I am thinking to apply for an internship on the north west coast, to have a chance of explore some of his work and also, some others sustainable landscape applications I am into.
Coming from the tropic, I feel also attracted to lush places. There are two designers from Australia that I also like, at least two that have been published and therefore are more known. Jamie Durie and Diarmuid Gavin.
Hello Steven, I am so glad you share my inspirational people. I tried to find some examples from Georges Descombes, but just found one project with 2 pictures. His biography sounds quite interesting, however I would like to see more of his work to see how all his deep ideas resulted. Do you know any site with more pics?
There is another landscape architect that I really admires, is more avant .. He is Claude Cormier...check it out and I would like to 'hear' your impresion.
Glad to be counted as one of your friends. I have had a quick look at your website and first impressions are very good indeed, I will return and study it in detail later today.
Best regards, Hugh
