Sincere thanks to everyone involved and much gratitude to Thames & Hudson. The book is available in book stores worldwide and via Thames & Hudson, links below.

Few people have difficulty conjuring images of modern Scandinavian design, whose influence over the past century has extended around the world. More difficult for many is imagining the vast landscapes of the Nordic countries, which range from the quiet flatlands of Denmark to the dramatic mountains and fjords of Norway. These majestic environments, combined with long summer days and dark winters, raking light and dense birch forests, and a lifestyle that embraces nature have given rise to exceptionally refined examples of garden and landscape design.

This richly illustrated volume presents the best Scandinavian gardens to have been produced over the past ten years. Organized by themes that encapsulate the special ambience and lifestyle of the Scandinavian landscapes and lifestyles—Simplicity, Silence, Fragility, Nakedness, Attunement, Boldness, Openness, and Care—each garden is extensively illustrated and accompanied by text noting its unique attractions and the qualities that make it an exemplar of Nordic design. The timelessness of Nordic design has proven itself around the world for many decades, and this volume shows how the quality of its gardens and landscapes follows suit, providing inspiration for all climes.

'Sheds light on simple, stylish gardens across the North Sea' - Daily Telegraph

'The excellent photographs in the book immediately take you on a journey demonstrating clearly all that is fresh and innovative in Nordic gardens. The author has brought the timelessness and quality of Nordic design into the light with this book, while at the same time providing maximum inspiration, not just for northern climes but for temperate environments around the world. If you love the beauty of Scandinavian landscape design you will love this book. - Reckless Gardener

'This beautifully illustrated book serves as an informative guide to the principles and techniques of contemporary Scandinavian garden design. The author has a keen sensitivity to the natural elements of the landscape, especially light and stone. This is a coffee table–worthy lookbook brimming with ideas and aesthetic integrity. It will stimulate possibilities for gardens well below the northern reaches of the Scandinavian latitudes.' - Publishers Weekly

'With her new book, New Nordic Gardens, Annika Zetterman is shining a light on the brilliance of landscape design throughout Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Finland. Zetterman walks us through how to create a visually interesting garden throughout the seasons. If anyone knows how to highlight the virtues of every season, it would be Scandinavians, who make living through the harshest winter look like a pure delight by embracing darkness.' — Gardenista

'After flipping through Annika Zetterman's New Nordic Gardens, we welcome the Nordic storm.' - Better Homes & Gardens

Nyt nordisk havedesign

Nyt nordisk havedesign


Den svenske havedesigner Annika Zetterman har skrevet en bog om det nyeste inden for moderne nordisk havestil. Her er altså ikke tale om engelsk haveromantik, men en mere moderne haveform, der er i tråd med vores arbejds- og fritidsliv, vores sociale relationer og vores forhold til naturen og klimaet. De forskellige kapitler beskriver karakteristiske træk ved de nordiske designidealer og viser, hvordan disse egenskaber kan bringes til udtryk i moderne havekunst og havearkitektur. Bogens billedside viser et bredt udvalg af uderum skabt af dygtige havedesignere, landskabsarkitekter og arkitekter fra Danmark, Sverige, Norge, Finland og Island.

Omverdenen beundrer os i de nordiske lande for vores moderne design og den særlige nordiske og skandinaviske stil og ofte indgår også vores skiftende klima med mørke vintre og lyse somre i fascinationen. Netop klimaet og den funktionalistiske stil har påvirket vores haver. Nordiske haver er forskellige i stil alt efter deres beliggenhed, men de er alle baseret på et fælles værdisæt med udgangspunkt i enkelhed og med brug af naturlige materialer, forfinede detaljer og velovervejet beplantning. Vi oplever store forskelle på årstiderne, og vi hylder denne variation, der gør, at vore haver også er i konstant forandring. Det naturlige lys ændrer sig med årstiderne. Hvis man bruger årstiderne som et kreativt værktøj og forener det med nogle grundlæggende kompositionsprincipper, har haver på vore breddegrader alle muligheder for at være spændende og æstetisk tiltalende.
