Gardens and Squares: 10 Examples of Small-Scale Landscaping in Brazil

"Landscaping is the only artistic expression that includes all five human senses," says Benedito Abbud in his book Creating Landscapes a guide to Working in Landscape Architecture. While architecture works mainly with sight and touch, landscaping also embraces smell, hearing and taste, "which provides a rich sensorial experience, by combining the most diverse and full perception experiences. The more a garden can sharpen all the senses, the better it fulfills its role."
