Summary

  • "Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape looks at twenty-three remarkable examples of designed open spaces - found throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East - that portray the surge of creative activity in contemporary landscape design. The projects range from innovative reinterpretations of the traditional town square to large parks, often built on ground reclaimed from obsolescence or degradation as cities remake and redefine their outdoor spaces."--BOOK JACKET.
