"The rich tradition of landscape design in the United States encompasses both simple eighteenth and early nineteenth century gardens and the lavish estates of the Gilded Age. Over time, and especially in the mid-twentieth-century, much of America s garden heritage was destroyed by creeping development and suburbanization. Thanks to the Garden Conservancy and other garden trusts and associations, this trend has been reversed and today many of these once-threatened treasures have been restored. Thirty gardens are presented, selected for the drama of their original creation and rescue and for their historical and horticultural importance. The gardens range from wonderful to woebegone, from grand estates to suburban plots, Each has its own character, and each has been brought back from the brink through a combination of imagination and tenacity."

The subtitle of this oversized ode to garden design is fascinating. Despite the fact that industrial aesthetics (plastics, AstroTurf, chain-link) are explored along with high-tech ideas like artificial fog and fiber-optics, the authors, well-known British designers, still see the garden in the context of its potential wildness, its site-specific possibilities. Flamboyantly photographed, international in scope, "Gardens for the Future" enlarges our mind's eye to include gardens of theory made manifest, such as the Garden of Cosmic Speculation in southwestern Scotland. Designer Charles Jencks explains, "Nature is basically curved, warped, undulating, jagged, zigzagged, and sometimes beautifully crinkly," all of which he has captured in stainless steel, concrete, and giant earthworks. Contrast this with the classic redesign, by Belgian Jacques Wirtz, of the 16th-century Tuileries gardens at the Louvre in Paris, or the perspective-skewered red garden made by Jack Lenor Larsen at his house on Long Island, and the reader gets an idea of the breadth, the exoticism, the sheer artistry of contemporary garden design. Not only do Cooper and Taylor take us on a tour of 20 exciting public and private gardens, they also help us make the leap into understanding them by starting out with a discussion of the influence of three great contemporary designers; Barragan, Noguchi, and Roberto Burle Marx. One of the most startling gardens in the book is Robert Irwin's Lower Central Garden at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. His mantra for the design, inscribed in stone in the garden, may be the only words that could be spoken of all the unusual gardens depicted in this elegant book. Irwin describes his work as "A sculpture in the form of a garden aspiring to be art." "--Valerie Easton"

Ebenezer Howard veröffentlicht 1902 sein Werk Garden Cities of Tomorrow, seine Ideen haben maßgeblich dazu beigetragen, der Bewegung für einen modernen Städtebau Richtung und Ziel zu geben. Sechs Jahrzehnte nach Erscheinen der ersten Ausgabe ergänzte Julius Posener diesen Klassiker der Stadtplanungstheorie um die erstmals 1945 erschienen Essays von Lewis Mumford und Frederic J. Osborn zu einem Streitgespräch der späten sechziger Jahre über die Gestalt der Stadt. Die vorliegende Neuauflage spannt den Bogen ins 21. Jahrhundert und erweitert die Ausgabe von 1968 um ein Vorwort von Carl Fingerhuth.
