Australian born Bernard Trainor's newest book celebrates the wild and elemental landscapes of California, from the craggy coasts of Big Sur to the fertile hills of Sonoma wine country. His award-winning work combines an awareness of regional context with materials, collaboration, and deep connection to the land. Beautifully photographed and documented with full colour plans, the projects in this survey of his recent work include a range of scale, from compact urban gardens to expansive rural sites.
Trainor's regional, sustainable approach inspires wonder and respect for nature as it aims to preserve and restore it.
