Donnell and Eckbo Gardens
Two Modern Californian Landscapes

Marc Treib

Thomas Church’s 1948 Donnell garden in Sonoma, California and Garrett’s Eckbo’s 1959 ALCOA Forcast garden in Los Angeles helped define the parameters of modern landscape design in the US.

Although these gardens appear in almost every book on modern
landscape architecture, little has been written about these gardens. This volume assembles virtually all known documents on the two projects, including an interview with Church’s collaborators, along with the holdings of the Environmental Design Archives, UC Berkeley.
