Making spaces: contemporary German landscape architecture
Thies Schröder, Bund Deutscher Landschafts-Architekten
Birkhäuser, 2002 - Architecture - 181 pages
Landscape architecture is a discipline which hovers between art and science, treading the fine line between invention and remembrance, ecology and abstraction, daring to be modern whilst mindful of tradition. This book attempts to grasp the state of affairs and develop new perspectives for landscape architecture. It takes as its starting point exemplary projects which have been realised over the last ten years mainly in Germany, but also in other countries like Switzerland and Saudi Arabia. In fundamental essays, discerning statements, in-depth projects documentations the issues which are at the heart of landscape architecture, open space design and landscape planning are explored. In times when European integration is increasing, agriculture is changing direction, sustainability is an issue and the demands on public space are growing, this publication provides a platform for the debate on landscape architecture. Lavishly illustrated and attractively designed, the book succeeds in communicating the visual fascination which lies in designing modern gardens, parks and landscapes.
