Metropolitan Landscape Architecture: Urban Parks And Landscape
The city does not exist without landscape, nor landscape without the city. The original landscape is always reflected in the form of the city. But how is architectonic coherence between the city and the landscape really achieved? 'Metropolitan Landscape Architecture' sketches the development of the urban landscape from the Renaissance to the present. The examples include urban landscapes and parks in Rome, Paris, London, Berlin, New York, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Boston, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Cologne.
