Saturday at 4 pm the Côte d’Azur’s most acclaimed landscape architect, Jean Mus, will be signing copies of his new book “Jardins méditerranéens contemporains” at FNAC Monaco.
The Grasse native has an impressive portfolio, which includes locally the Grimaldi Forum gardens, the hotels Monte Carlo Beach and Monte-Carlo Bay, as well as the Tour Odeon. He’s also designed the 2,000 sqm “Versailles-style cream- and green-hued oasis” at the refurbished Ritz Paris.
Recognised and admired for his Mediterranean style, Mr Mus presents in his book 20 spectacular gardens of his most recent creations, as illustrated by photographer Philippe Perdereau with anecdotes and practical tips written by Dane McDowell.
Mr Mus studied at the Garden and Landscape School of Versailles and is Jury President of the new Côte d’Azur Garden Festival, which runs April 1-May 1, 2017 with competitors’ garden designs on display in Cannes, Antibes, Grasse, Nice and Menton.
