Riassunto: The first book on Bok Tower Gardens, the exceptional National Historic Landmark in central Florida designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and Milton B. Medary. Built in 1929 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1993, Bok Tower Gardens is not only an architectural and landscape masterpiece, it is also the embodiment of a fascinating moment in American history. Publisher, philanthropist, and naturalist Edward Bok commissioned two esteemed designers, landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and architect Milton B. Medary, to create a sanctuary that would preserve the natural beauty of the state. Located on 600 acres, the historic garden is centered on the beautiful Pinewood Estate and the 205-foot-high marble and coquina Singing Tower, which houses one of the world?s finest carillons. One of the great achievements of America?s golden age of architecture, Bok Tower Gardens is a complete work of art that is also an extraordinary public monument.
L'autore: Kenneth Treister is an architect and artist. He has written five books, including Havana Forever. David Price, president of the Bok Tower Gardens Foundation, was for twenty years director of horticulture at the site. Dan Forer is an acclaimed architectural photographer. Derek Bok is president emeritus of Harvard University. Bob Graham is a former governor of Florida.
