| Design ideas for landscape architecture with over three hundred illustrations

What do we love about gardens, and what can landscape architecture be today? Guido Hager (*1958) has been exploring these questions throughout the twenty-five years of his professional career. Now he has taken his ideas, insights, and experiences from this period and turned them into a book featuring over three hundred illustrations and an abundance of creative thoughts on around sixty gardens, parks, squares, streets, and promenades.This publication provides a variety of perspectives on the garden in general as well as on the tradition of historical gardens. Through his designs, Hager shows how this garden culture has been translated into contemporary concepts that take site-specific contexts into consideration. He highlights different ways of laying out aesthetically pleasing, public green zones and private gardens and presents ways of dealing with garden memorials that are in keeping with the times. Guide Hagen also supplies answers to questions such as how structures can be designed to fit into a neighborhood, how they advance architecture, and whether or not they can simultaneously both stimulate and calm the senses.
