I recently had the privilege of attending the lecture, luncheonn and book signing of Luciano Giubbilei with Sarah Eilers and Sandy Lucas at the Houston Museum of Fine Art. Not only is Luciano charming, (I could listen to him talk all day long), he is extremely talented too.
Since 1997 Luciano Giubbilei has been creating serenely beautiful and sculptural gardens across three continents. Giubbilei is known for the understated elegance of his designs and his responsive approach to individual clients. His work draws on his Italian heritage, especially the Renaissance gardens of Villa Gamberaia in Tuscany.
His beautiful book examines 12 significant gardens from his portfolio; each project fully documented. From the preparation of mood boards to final planting and finishing, this book covers it all. A section on site development, nursery production, sourcing of plants, and information on artists and craftsmen, completes the in-depth account of his methods and inspiration.
