landscape architecture europe #5
Santrauka: This fifth edition of the book series Landscape Architecture Europe shows and reflects on 48 contemporary projects, selected by a practitioners’ jury out of over 200 entries from all over Europe. The selected projects are groundbreaking: some for their innovative ways of tackling sustainability, others for their political stance concerning concepts such as nature and democracy. This richly illustrated book offers thought-provoking texts in support of three landscape architectural approaches to the challenges of the 21st century: to care for people, places and what is already there, to create urban landscapes of new kinds, and to act and move the course of things. In addition to these explorations two portraits were written: one about the young Hungarian landscape architect Dominka Tihany and her experiences with bottom-up projects; and one about Dirk Sijmons, a well known Dutch landscape architect, and recent winner of the Sir Jellicoe Award. Nature and Democracy are subject of the two essays in the book that consists of 320 richly illustrated pages, all edited by Lisa Diedrich (editor-in-chief, D), Mark Hendriks (NL), Claudia Moll (CH), Mike Friesen (SE) and Christel Lindgren (SE).
