The first overview of contemporary landscape design in Scandinavia minimalist and attuned to nature inspiring for design professionals as well as amateur gardeners Few people have difficulty conjuring images of modern Scandinavian design, whose influence over the past century has extended around the world. More difficult for many is imagining the vast landscapes of the Nordic countries, which range from the quiet flatlands of Denmark to the dramatic mountains and fjords of Norway. These majestic environments, combined with long summer days and dark winters, raking light and dense birch forests, and a lifestyle that embraces nature have given rise to exceptionally refined examples of garden and landscape design.

Landscape Observer: London provides an overview of around 90 projects that were implemented in recent years, ranging in scale and budget. Photographs capture the spaces in their everyday setup and operation and details of the hard and soft landscape elements are labeled to provide readers with essential information on key materials and plants used in each individual project.

Construction in the Landscape describes the impact of construction on the land and landscape where it takes place. Geographical coverage is necessarily global to reflect the great variation both in people''s economic and social needs and in the shortage or abundance of natural resources. Part I introduces both land resources, whether used for agriculture, human settlement or mineral extraction or conserved as scenery, wildlife habitat or for the undefined needs of future generations; and construction, its products, skills, processes and impacts on land resources. Part II describes specific forms of civil engineering û from landform adaptation, through dams and river control works, coastal construction and transport infrastructure to particular types of structure such as bridges, towers and power stations, or the layout of complete settlements. Part III deals with regional planning of construction and land use in different geographical circumstances û from fine scenery, development û and to the sort of land

Trees are ideal sources of shade; where they cannot be used, their function is taken over by tents, pergolas, and pavilions. In the context of global warming, shade-providing construction is becoming an increasingly important building task. In Part One of this book, specialists in the field present the typical forms of shade-providing construction as well as the design approach associated with each. Part Two presents easily consultable overviews of 140 plants that have proven to be effective givers of shade in temperate, subtropical, and tropical zones. Part Three presents thirty built projects by architects and landscape architects from five continents. These constructions illustrate a wide variety of functions and scales and cover various climatic zones and cultural contexts. All structures are constructionally and systematically analyzed with texts, true-to-scale drawings, and photographs from their foundations to their connections and the shadows they cast.

Creative gardeners and architects have risen to meet the unique challenges of the urban landscape, designing spaces that celebrate the city while providing a restful escape. New York City Gardens presents New York''s evolving tradition of garden culture through images and discussions of thirty of its most outstanding gardens, from world-famous botanical gardens to richly re-cultivated public urban spaces, luxurious penthouse terraces, and innovative art gardens without soil or plants.

What is specific about a place? And how can the hidden potentials of a place, a landscape be made visible? hutterreimann + cejka landschaftsarchitekten have been designing public open spaces such as parks, squares, garden shows and playgrounds as well as residential environments, private gardens and representative complexes for the private sector for ten years now. Their unconventional solutions are characterised by a passion for detail and the courage to make ''large gestures'' without fear of upsetting the balance. Specific landscapes therefore emerge from an interplay of familiar and new, of reflection and eidetic poetry. This book presents the whole spectrum of unconventional proposals by the landscape architects in multitudinous photographs, plans and drawings as well as accompanying essays.

Landscape architecture can be a discipline of planning that creates everyday worlds just as architecture does or it can assert its position as an art form and produce extraordinary works that take on communicative tasks. Monika Gora''s oeuvre is based on nearly twenty years of work as a landscape architect and artist based in Malmo, Sweden, which has produced numerous works in Scandinavia and Central Europe, which have been awarded many prizes and been published internationally. Moving beyond the seriousness of classical landscape architecture, Gora s work reveals a playful approach to the environment and proves that the built landscape need not be a deadly serious matter but rather is there for the senses: for astonishment, brooding, an aha or a laugh, somewhere between intellect and sensibility, beyond the materialism of garden and landscape architecture and far from the conceptualism of museum art.
