Product Details


“At first glance, this might look like the standard coffee-table treat, but there’s more to it than stunning pictures (though there are certainly plenty of those). In among them are plans, sections, hand-drawn sketches and design details, some of them so early in the process that they’re really just the drawn equivalent of thinking aloud, others finished and rich with detail. Together, they provide a masterclass in Jungles’ signature techniques: capturing and exploiting views; protecting, using and sometimes repurposing existing features; crafting multipurpose spaces that work for different users; and creating a seamless movement from inside to outside.” 
Garden Design Journal

“Raymond Jungles is as busy as ever creating the future green spaces of Miami’s most exclusive residential developments, so we’re surprised the man had the time to oversee The Cultivated Wild, a volume that chronicles his widely celebrated landscape architecture. Highlighting private projects all over the world as well as public masterpieces like the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, the book (illustrated with photographs, sketches and design details) demonstrates how the prolific Jungles makes flora his all-enchanting canvas time and time again.”

“Flora that’s sensuous and fantastical, but ultimately reassuring and domesticated. Short narrative and hand-drawn sketches remind readers that these tableaux of ‘wilderness,’ however fabulous, are ultimately considered works of set design.”
