Daily Diary 07.21.21: It’s time to upgrade your library with a trio of well-designed books. First up is Evergreen Architecture. This stunning book takes a closer look at how architects have used flora in the built environment and the reasoning behind it. Secondly, Out of the Woods explores the use of one of mankind’s oldest building materials and the innovative ways it is still being used in the 21st century. Lastly, with so many of us adding gardens to our homes and spaces, The Gardens of Eden gives readers an insider’s look at some of the projects defining modern gardening. All 3 books can be found at Gestalten.
