Having personal, private, outdoor space is becoming ever-more elusive as urban areas become more crowded due to population growth and development. Urban Oasis: Finding Tranquility at Home features projects from Sydney to Singapore and London to New York that showcase inspirational and aspirational rooftops, gardens and courtyards that offer private pockets of paradise. Amid the hustle and bustle of their urban environments, these outdoor spaces provide relaxing, sociable and plant-filled settings for their owners to savour peace and calm, and the company of family and friends, surrounded by nature and in the fresh, open air. AUTHOR: Rebecca Gross specialises in writing about architecture and design. She has a Masters in History of Decorative Arts and Design from Parsons School of Design in New York and is interested in understanding cultural history through the lens of architecture and design. Rebecca writes for Australian and New Zealand magazines, architects and designers and served as editor for New Orleans: An Intimate Journey Through a City With Soul written by Professor Geoffrey H. Baker.
