The Cubist Garden at Villa Noalles: Designed by architect and landscape designer Gabriel Guevrekian in the 1920’s. It was a departure from existing garden design in that it wasn’t an idealized
slice of nature. Instead, it was “a composition of lines and surfaces built with living and inert materials and framed like a picture.” (quoted from Dorothee Imbert.) Mr. Guevrekian designed 3 cubist gardens but this was the only one I found photos of. It is possible to visit it today in southeast France in the town of Hyeres.
