Miniature And Panorama: Vogt Landscape Architects, Projects 2000–12
di Günther Vogt
Using a typological structure (landscape, park, square, garden, promenade, etc.), Günther Vogt describes the theoretical foundation on which the successful projects of Vogt Landscape Architects are based. In recent years the offi ce has realized international projects in Europe and the United States, including a new type of city park for the Tate Modern in London (with Herzog & de Meuron); an “all-weather garden” with great poetic power at the Hyatt Hotel in Zürich (with Meili, Peter Architekten); an indoor tropical garden for the Novartis Campus in Basel (with Diener & Diener); and the exterior spaces of the Allianz Arena in Munich (with Herzog & de Meuron). This new and extended version of one of our best sellers also documents recent works, such as public realm and streetscape designs for the athletes’ village of the Olympic Games in London 2012.
