Modern Landscape


Publisher: Phaidon Press 2003 Author: Michael Spens ISBN: 9780714841557 Format: Hardback, 239pp, 300mm x 260mm

Modern Landscape is a truly innovative volume providing an in-depth analysis of contemporary landscape architecture over the past decade. 

Landscape designers have historically collaborated with architects and engineers but it is the complementary role of land and installation artists and sculptors that especially characterises contemporary project work. Modern Landscape showcases a series of recent schemes by established and emerging designers, and includes as introductory section by Michael Spens which looks at historical and modernist precedents, and presents research to show that the sources of contemporary inspiration are often drawn from our interaction with the environment through painting, drawings, major landscape designs and the natural world.
