Another grey and not-so-nice day outside. But never mind. There are ‘a touch of modern – from the archive’ photos to check out and appreciate. Reminds me of all the interesting, fascinating and beautiful garden related designs I’ve come across over the years. Here’s a selection.
This landscape section can be seen just inside the entrance to the Botanical Garden, Gothenburg. The grey slate slabs are cut in a traditional, irregular format which contrast against the sleek circular grey granite seating and borders with corten steel edging.
The metal shade screens remind me of palm tree foliage. Very cool. Seen in Alicante, Spain on the promenade by the port.
Visiting Malmö, Sweden in early June in 2022 they were working hard getting Slottsträdgården ready the local garden show. Those curvy, wooden loungers speak a modern language.
This rail carriage once upon a time used to transport something. Pretty sure it wasn’t Phormiums. But what do I know? A scene from east London, heading towards Canary Wharf.
An igloo inspired corten steel pergola seen in Gothenburg, Sweden. Minimalistic and so cool.
Not sure if the ingredients in this scene are all that modern. But the impression is. Sleek and minimalistic to a tee. Seen in Málaga, Spain.
Sculpture on temporary display in Málaga, Spain some years ago. Entitled ‘Caminante No1’ (Walker).
What made me capture this view was the very lush foliage against that raspberry bling background. Nice contrast! Wingårdh Architects’ office in Gothenburg, Sweden.
