Gilles Clément (born at Argenton-sur-Creuse, Indre, France in 1943), is a French gardener, garden designer, botanist, entomologist and writer. He is the author of several concepts in the framework of landscaping of the end of the twentieth century or the beginning of the twenty-first century, including in particular, 'moving garden' (jardin en mouvement), 'planetary garden' (jardin planétaire) and 'third landscape' (tiers paysage).[1]

He has gained attention for his design of public parks in France, such as Parc André-Citroën.[2] In 1998, he was the recipient of France's National Landscape Prize.[3] Since 1977 he has developed his own "moving garden" (le jardin en mouvement) at La Vallée, Creuse.

Clément designed the exhibition Environment: Approaches for Tomorrow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in 2006.[4]
