***Features an Australian couturier*** When French queen Catherine de Medici created the Tuileries Palace and Garden outside Paris' medieval walls, she began the unprecedented expansion and greening of one of the world's great cities. Now Paris's extraordinary public parks are rivalled only by secret courtyard gardens behind inscrutable seventeenth-century facades and miniature orchards of delight on hidden roof terraces. Among the more than 30 great and small projects within 'In and Out of Paris' are fresh garden concepts in the city's environs such as Vaux-le-Vicomte, Versailles, Courances, and Mery-sur-Oise, which are otherwise all bastions of classic Andre Le Notre style French gardens. Also discover the Paris gardens of celebrated artist Jean-Michel Othoniel and art aficionado Pierre Berge, Pritzker Prize winning architect Kenzo Tange's Japanese retreat in the Bastille, Australian couturier Martin Grant's very tiny terrace in the Marais, visionary Mexican painter MariCarmen Hernandez's Montmartre rooftop, American architect Michael Herrman's perfect homage to Le Corbusier's surreal Champs-Elysee garden for bon vivant Charles de Beistegui, and the exotic mur vegetals inside botanist Patrick Blanc's living room. 'In and Out of Paris' showcases top modern masters Louis Benech, Gilles Clement, Pascal Cribier, Christian Fournet, Camille Muller, Hugues Peuvergne, and Pierre-Alexandre Risser, who represent a new era of experiments, colour, and asymmetry in the Paris garden. 225 colour photographs
