The Order of Landscape, João Gomes da Silva
The Order of Landscape presents a powerful insight into the work of João Gomes da Silva, a forefront figure in contemporary landscape architecture. Through an extensive duotone photo essay by João Carmo Simões, a collection of texts and a set of plans, the book unveils this seminal body of work.
Beginning in 1987, with Álvaro Siza in the Malagueira plan, Gomes da Silva’s career has decisively marked Portuguese contemporary architecture. From Serralves Museum Garden to Madeira’s Seafront Promenade and Lisbon's riverfront, his particular conception of new grounds proposes a formality without formalisms and a naturalness without naturalisms.
