CHANGES IN SCENERY. Contemporary Landscape Architecture in Europe
Leading figures and major concepts in contemporary landscape architecture are expertly portrayed in this publication. Today, landscape architecture is assuming a significance which for decades was reserved for architecture. In landscape architecture our aspiration to combine functional designs with artistic vision, the longing to reconcile public demands with convincing concepts, and not least the hope of social integration are united. In the foreword Christophe Girot argues that a creative dialogue between strong identities is vital for the ongoing "Changes in Scenery". The scope of the concepts from eight European countries range from the sensual compositions of Bet Figueras (Spain), to Guido Hager's emphasis on garden art (Switzerland), from the extensive plans of the French firm Desvigne & Dalnoky to the perpetuation of classical Modernism by the Spaniard Batlle i Roig. The large oeuvres of Adriaan Geuze (the Netherlands) and Peter Latz (Germany) are also represented as are the provocative experiments of the British firm Gross. Max. Carefully selected illustrations accompanied by compelling and descriptive texts and a reflective essay provide a fascinating picture of present-day landscape architecture in Europe.
