Urban Spaces: New City Parks
Parks offer a little bit of nature in the middle of a vast gray city. Urban Spaces: New City Parks looks at fifteen ground-breaking projects that blur the distinction between landscaping and art, between artificial and natural. These projects explore the possibilities of landscape architecture with more than
fifteen innovative, imaginative solutions to urban challenges. Thoroughly documented with commentary by the creators and hundreds of full-color photographs and plans, these projects represent the future and direction of green-space planning.
