C A O    P E R R O T



Blurring the line between art and landscape has been a CAO PERROT leitmotiv for over a decade. This singular approach – making a place for dreaming – has resulted in a diverse portfolio, which includes intimate gardens, public art installations in historic and contemporary sites, and park design including the winning entry for a 240-hectare Guangming Central Park in Shenzhen, China.
CAO PERROT is currently undertaking the 7.5-hectare Expansion of Swarovski Kristallwelten (Swarovski Crystal Worlds) in Austria. Scheduled opening, Summer 2015.
CAO PERROT’s work has been widely published, and exhibited at international garden festivals and museums, including 2006 Design Life Now: National Design Triennial at Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York. The Architectural League of New York named Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot as "Emerging Voices 2013".


ANDY CAO
Landscape artist Andy Cao is based in Los Angeles. Andy was a recipient of the Prince Charitable Trusts Rome Prize Fellowship in Landscape Architecture at the American Academy in Rome (2002), and the Loeb Fellowship at Harvard University Graduate School of Design (2011).
Andy attended University of Houston College of Architecture and received a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He has taught landscape design at USC School of Architecture, and Cal Poly Pomona.


XAVIER PERROT
Landscape artist Xavier Perrot is based in Brittany, France. He studied landscape design at Saint-Ilan School in Brittany, and the Conservatoire International des Parcs et Jardins et du Paysage in Chaumont-sur-Loire.
