Water, central to the Indian cosmos and society, is reflected in Indian art and architecture as well as gardens. Zahid Sardar author of New Garden Design and other design books, and a journalist in San Francisco for over two decades, traveled recently to historic gardens in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur, as well as to the fascinating 1960s rock garden by Nek Chand in Le Corbusier’s Chandigarh. With slides and images, Zahid Sardar will discuss the cosmic and social ideas that underpin many of these beautiful spaces and how the concepts that shaped Indian paradise gardens have also influenced modern landscapes in the West.

Please join us for light refreshments and a book signing with the author on his recent publication, New Garden Design. Zahid Sardar is a San Francisco editor and writer who specializes in interiors, architecture and design. He is the author of New Garden Design and San Francisco Modern. He has also written the text of Textiles Arts of India and his articles about design have appeared in Metropolis, Architecture, Interior Design, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, Western Interiors & Design and Landscape Architecture magazines. He was the architecture and design editor of the San Francisco Examiner magazine and has been design editor at the San Francisco Chronicle for a decade.
