Garden photo of the Day - Fernando Caruncho
|design by Fernando Caruncho|
Fernando Caruncho, the minimalist landscape designer, views the garden, not as a landscape, but as a person with its own personality and as a member of the family; a protector of the residence.
He first attended the University of Madrid to study philosophy, but learning of the Greek method of teaching in the garden, he transferred to Castillo de Batres School in Madrid where he received a degree in landscape design in 1979.
Fernando saw the importance of the garden to the Greek philosopher Plato, who used the garden as a place of teaching and repose. He follows this idea and his gardens provide every opportunity for meditation and reflection.
