Mid-Century Modern Garden

Capturing the Classic Style

Ethne Clarke


The Mid-Century Modern Garden links the design of homes and gardens popular during the mid-century period of 1940–1970 to contemporary style and the desire to create healthy, sustainable lives.

A substantial introduction looks at the transformation of Modernism into Mid-Century Modern (MCM); the impact of war and how it led to the spread and development of modernism. There is a particular focus on Frank Lloyd Wright and Midwest modern, the arrival of Bauhaus on the East Coast of America, Post-War Suburbs and the rise of West Coast Ranch-style living.

Fully illustrated with archive and contemporary photographs and drawings in colour and black and white, the chapters include classic examples of mid-century architecture and landscaping accompanied by examples of gardens executed according to MCM principles, and drawn from the portfolios of contemporary designers in the USA, Europe and Pacific rim.
