Forty years ago Fernando Caruncho & Asociados began his national and international garden activity. Along his trajectory, he has always been characterized for designing architecture together with the landscape and so getting a great synergy between both of them, with the result of a project which works unitarily showing all its potential.
After forty years of experience, Caruncho Garden & Architecture, incorporates Fernando and Pedro Caruncho to the studio. A new generation that was raised and educated in gardens, who integrates a new perspective over the world of architecture, inspired by the aim of joining man to nature, reaching the beauty through garden, landscape and architecture as a union.
We believe it is the moment for a change in the world of architecture. Our aim is to return man to nature, designing our architecture with the starting point of the garden.
With this selection, we want to show some of our designs from these past years. Our architecture is always a consequence of the garden, and its connection with the landscape. This way, it obtains a complete integration of the architecture within the Spirit of the Place, to whom we believe we owe ourselves. There are examples of light-architecture, where we include our kiosks that are pavilions in the garden, and architecture grafted in the garden.
Fernando Caruncho is a Spanish landscape designer; he started his Philosophy studies in the Autónoma University in Madrid in 1975.
Throughout his studies, he discovered the world of gardens and, starting in 1978, he combined his philosophy studies with gardening and landscape design at the "Castillo de Batres" School in Madrid.
He continuously deepens in his understanding of both fields, which are present in all of his projects.
His Mediterranean background made him understand that the eastern and western are two complementary worlds. From his admiration to both cultures, Fernando Caruncho learned to use geometry as a universal language and its application to the landscape.
Through the last 34 years, he has worked on various public and private gardens,including "La Terraza de los Laureles" at the Madrid Botanical Garden.
His professional activity has led him to various international projects in France, Italy, United States, New Zealand and Japan.His works are published in national and international publications
Part of his works were compiled in a monograph published by e Monacelli Press in New York under the title of Mirrors of Paradise: the Gardens of Fernando Caruncho, written by Guy Cooper and Gordon Taylor.
Currently, he is working on a new book about his latest projects.
