LANDSCHAFTSARCHITEKTUR IN SKANDINAVIEN / LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE IN SCANDINAVIA. Projects from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland
Just as modern Scandinavian architecture captivates with its elegance and high quality so too does its landscape architecture. During the last century Danish and Swedish landscape architecture was amongst the European avant garde, and in more recent years, the development in Scandinavia along with Spain, the Netherlands and France has captured our interest once again. A new generation of designers has been responsible for creating landscape architectures which met with international praise, and the names Sn hetta, Thorbj rn Andersson, Stig L. Andersson, Steen H yer und Preben Skaarup are now known far beyond the borders of Scandinavia. Featuring examples from Topos which include the harbour area in Copenhagen, new squares in Bergen, the redesigning of the railway station area in Jordro/Haninge, and avalanche protection in Iceland, this volume provides an overview of Scandinavia's contribution to the design of new parks, squares and landscapes.
