Roberto Burle Marx was one of the worldâs most outstanding
landscape and garden designers, whose works are to be found all
over the globe. Possibly his most famous designs are the gardens of
the state buildings in Brasilia and the immense âaterroâ in Rio de
Janeiro, which is an artificial seaward extension of the coastline that
stretches for kilometres along the beach in the fashionable southern
suburbs ofthe city. Burle Marxâs work has had a tremendous impact
because he invented a completely new concept for the design of
gardens and public spaces, adapted for tropical environments.
Two major influences on Burle Marxâs artistic development were
abstract art and the native flora of Brazil. Both arose from his visits
to Europe during the 1920s as a young man, where he studied art and
music. There he came under the influence of the modern movement
in painting led by Picasso, Braque and others and rapidly developed
his extraordinary facility for creating and moulding abstract designs
for his own purposes, first in painting and later in garden design. He
was tremendously impressed by the Botanic Gardens at Berlin-
Dahlem, at that time still considered highly radical for its phyto-
geographical and ecological arrangement, as formulated by Adolf
Engler. This fired Burle Marx with the idea of combining the forms

From what has been posted I realize something I said lead to the wrong
impression. Bruce McAlpin now lives on the west coast of Florida, not the
west coast of the US. He is still a fabulous grower to perfection. Last I
heard, he does not operate on email.

There have been so many wonderful posts that I may have actually missed
these names; Alistair Hay and our mant asian specialists, not the least of
whom are the amazing Li Heng, Jin Murata and Sin Yeng Wong. Also Dr Hu who I
believe was still publishing in her late 90s. We also have wonderful
plantsmen from India including the Pradhans and Dr M. Sivadasan.
