The Complete Works of Shunmyo Masuno, Japan's Leading Garden DesignerBook - 2012
Presents 37 major gardens around the world in a wide variety of types and settings: traditional and contemporary, urban and rural, public spaces and private residences, and including temple, office, hotel and campus venues. Masuno achieved fame for his work in Japan, but he is becoming increasingly known internationally, and in 2011 completed his first commission in the United States. Divided into three chapters "Traditional Zen Gardens," "Contemporary Zen Gardens" and "Zen Gardens outside Japan," with photographs and architectural plans or sketches, each garden is described and analyzed by author Mira Locher, herself an architect and a scholar well versed in Japanese culture.
