Lost in Paradise. A Journey Through the Persian Landscape

Herausgegeben von Institute of Landscape and Urban Studies LUS, D-ARCH, ETH Zürich
Neuausg. 2021. 80 S. 2 Abb. KT
GTA VERLAG


Gardens throughout history have elicited intangible fascination. Mystical beauty and a poetic sense for eternal longing are intrinsic to the long tradition of the Persian Garden. It was these values that formed the foundation for all Western gardens that have followed, even giving us the word 'paradise', the setting for the biblical Garden of Eden. Deriving from the Zoroastrian culture, the Avestan word pairidaeza simply means 'walled around'. To the outside world today, Iran's image is marked by political and cultural ambiguity. Yet it is in the gardens of this arid country where one can experience its Persian heritage most vividly. Lying solitary and almost untouched by time in the sparse landscape between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf, the gardens still serve as places for quiet contemplation." Lost in Paradise" offers different interpretations of the walled garden and aims to reconcile contemporary events with the enigmatic notion of paradise.
