Agreed. I believe Mr Amano has a unique mix of qualities that make his work possible. Not only has he massive amounts of vision but he is also from a culture that is very unique in its relationship with nature. I can only see someone else out of Japan coming close, and even then I doubt they would have the same outlook in aesthetics toward context (for example the products developed by Amano to minimise disruption to the 'scape - glassware, cabinet style, tank style etc. etc.)Mark Evans said:The Man, Mr Amano, really is the greatest ever scaper to live, and In My very honest opinion, no one will ever come close to him.

clonitza said:ust remember that Amano is not alone, ADA is not made of robots, is made of people that collaborate in doing that beautiful things. Amano alone would have achieved nothing without his mates.
I think creating something original is still possible but I think what Amano did by creating the 'Nature' style is still a one off in its popularity and vision.Mark Evans said:You've got oli knott, doing the mad and bizarre stuff...which he does well by the way
Amano doing the Nature thing, like no other. You've got maybe biotopes, which George covered, and did really good. Then onto the Dutch themed tanks. Maybe, there's is an avenue to slightly change the Dutch theme, but then it's just 'tweaks' like you say.
