The first volume in Princeton Architectural Press's new Modern Landscapes: transition and Transformation series, Lawrence Halrpin's Skyline Park showcases the acclaimed landscape designer's urban renewal effort for downtown Denver in the 1970s. Drawing on the rugged beauty of the city's natural surroundings for inspiration, Halprin created a signature landmark of sunken fountains, walls, and berms that served as an urban promenade and an oasis from the surrounding streets. This first book on Halprin's modern landscape project features new photography, archival drawings, and original documentation.
