Garden Gallery: Ryue Nishizawa’s Garden House

Garden  House by Ryue Nishizawa
How about this little slice of inspiration for monday morning.  Landscapers are always trying to get architects, homeowners and builders  to involve them earlier and more holistically into the process of site design and construction….and it often doesn’t happen.  So this notion of integrating gardens and greenery to an even greater level seems particularly  remarkable. I do hope we start building more homes like this — if you were a green-starved city dweller — wouldn’t you like to live here?

You’d never know you were in the city. Somehow the Japanese always seem to do more with less.
