Tita Giese: Plantation Projects
Publisher: Distanz 2017 ISBN: 9783954761951 Editor: Robert Grunenberg Format: Hardcover, 192pp, 320x240mm
Tita Giese realises vegetal landscapes in public settings — urban squares, intersections, and gardens around architectural structures. Focusing on sites in urban and industrial environments, she helps nature reclaim a niche for itself, developing unique projects at the intersection between art, architecture, urban planning, and botany. This book is a catalogue raisonne of sorts of Giese's oeuvre. With contributions by Joachim Bessing, Robert Grunenberg, Thomas Ruff, and Pierre de Meuron, who says that her work his "unlike anyone else’s in the world".
