Gilles Clément

Gilles Clément is a landscaper, gardener and author. Father of many concepts such as the "Garden in Motion", the "Planetary Garden" or the "Third Landscape", he favors the living to formal resolution in its spatial approach. Graduated from the École d’Horticulture de Versailles, which will become the École Nationale de Paysage de Versailles, he teaches there for many years, in parallel with his landscaping projects, which allow him to put into practice his theories. He thus signed many projects including the André Citroën Park, the Quai Branly Garden, the Henri-Matisse Park in Lille - which hosts Île Derborence -, the roof of the Saint-Nazaire underwater base, the Domaine du Rayol, among others. In 2011-2012, he holds the annual chair of artistic creation at the Collège de France.
