Mid-century gardens, with their focus on lifestyle, materials, construction techniques and plants, and spatial expression became a distinctive garden style that was promoted through popular media like Sunset Magazine and, in Australia, House and Garden. This talk will delve into some of the roots of mid-century gardens and particularly the influence of the Californian style of gardening so appropriate to Adelaide’s Mediterranean climate and lifestyle.
James Hayter is a landscape architect and Director of Oxigen, Landscape Architects and Urban Designers. He is a Professor in the School of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Adelaide.
