Swiss landscape architect ENZO ENEA has built up an international company with 200 employees, and branch offices in Miami and New York. His clients include private parties as well as public institutions and corporations. His aesthetic and design principles strive to dissolve the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces by integrating interiors into their surrounding landscapes. He has taken this principle to its extreme in a very beautiful fashion with his expansive TREE MUSEUM, not far from Lake Zurich. The outdoor museum contains more than 50 TREE GIANTS taken from all over Switzerland, some of which are more than a century old, and sculptures that are compellingly integrated into this designed landscape, where botany, architecture, art, and design come together in perfect harmony.
