Full Description

Beyond Bold: Inspiration, Collaboration, Evolution follows the “Next Generation”of leadership at Oehme van Sweden, a landscape architecture firm that’s been creating extraordinary outdoor spaces for nearly 50 years. With 320 pages of vibrant photographs, detailed project plans, and first-hand commentary from principals Sheila Brady, Lisa Delplace, and Eric Groft, the book is a one-of-a-kind record of OvS’ history and evolution. Building upon OvS’ reputation for sustainable, client-tailored residential design, the current leaders have developed an ouvre that’s as legacy-driven as it is exploratory. From private gardens and pools to the expansive Tippet Rise Art Center in rural Montana to urban oases like the Chicago and New York Botanical Gardens, the projects featured in this book are masterpeices of both horticulture and hardscape. Arranged into thematic chapters - “The House and its Garden,” “Gathering Places,” “At the Water’s Edge,” “Urban Retreats” and “Farms and Fields" - Beyond Bold: Inspiration, Collaboration, Evolution is an image-rich study of some of the most geographically and stylistically diverse landscape projects by the top players in the industry.

About the Author

OvS was founded in Washington, DC in 1975 by horticulturalist Wolfgang Oehme and architect James van Sweden. Their partnership established a style known as the New American Garden, which celebrates the seasonal splendor of the American meadow while promoting its inherent ecological and sustainable values. Under the guidance of the new principals, the OvS style continues to evolve but remains driven by art, science, and emotional connections.
