Stadtliches Grün shows urban spaces that combine nature and culture - projects that on one hand integrate into the everyday life and on the other hand offer a place where a short retreat from traffic, noise and stress is possible. The focus is mainly on recently developed town squares and open spaces. Represented are designs of selected offices, which fit into the urban context and stand out by using diversity, special aesthetic features and variety of different strategies.
This book shows how landscape architects form the space to the aesthetic sensibilities and the usage requirements of the citizens. For the design of installations in public spaces as many environmental factors must be considered as possibilities to shape the cityscape in an artistic and innovative way.
The editor Fenna Tinnefeld was engaged in modern concepts of landscape architecture in the urban fabric for serveral years and observed the change in social perception and use of urban open spaces. With this selection of exemplary projects the book gives an overview of the specific requirements that are imposed on landscaping architecture today and their potential for modern urban planning.
