Dumbarton Oaks Colloquia on the History of Landscape Architecture

The Garden and Landscape Studies Program at Dumbarton Oaks publishes the proceedings of its annual symposia in this series. Initially conceived as a series of events that examined the gardens and landscape architecture of particular countries, epochs, or the work of individual designers, they investigate topics that range from regionalism and environmentalism to theme parks and memorials, ideologies, and contemporary aesthetics. With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the list has now expanded to encompass the history and design of urban landscapes. The symposia volumes remain fundamental points of reference for the history of garden and landscape studies and the current state of research in this subject area.

Ex Horto: Dumbarton Oaks Texts in Garden and Landscape Studies

More recently, Dumbarton Oaks has also embarked upon a publication of a new ex horto series of classic and rare texts on garden history and on the philosophy, art, and techniques of landscape architecture, making available in English both works in manuscript that have never been published and books that have long been out of print. These volumes cover a broad geographical and temporal range, from ancient Chinese poetry to twentieth-century gardening treatises, and will eventually constitute a library of historical sources that have defined the core of the field. By making these works approachable, the ex horto volumes provide unprecedented access to the foundational literature of garden and landscape studies.
