The UNESCO garden, landscaped in 1958 by the Japanese sculptor, Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988), has influenced the field of landscape architecture as well as modern sculpture. It marked a turning point in Noguchi’s artistic career. He turned resolutely abstract in later garden and courtyard designs and never again made references to Japan in such a direct way.

Using the archives of UNESCO in Paris and the Isamu Noguchi Foundation in Long Island City, Marc Treib traces the origins and development of the project. He discusses the debates behind the arts program for UNESCO House, and draws comparisons with two other gardens in Japan. Historic and contemporary photographs present the development of the design, and its colors and textures throughout the seasons. This is the first book to present an in-depth study on this important garden by the great sculptor.

Marc Treib is Professor of Architecture at the University of California at Berkeley.
