£14.99

Product description

This book is in excellent condition. The dust jacket has a 5mm tear at the top of the spine and very slight edge wear in places, but is otherwise in excellent condition. Internally the pages are in excellent condition - clean, tight and unmarked - almost as new. The book is lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, drawings and plans.

Peter Walker and Partners (PWP) was formed in 1983.Their projects, executed worldwide, vary both in scale and type: urban design and planning, corporate headquarters and university campuses, parks, plazas and gardens. Exploring the relationships between art, culture and context, Peter Walker re-forms the landscape whether urban or natural and challenges traditional concepts of design. This book features the companys work from the last seven years, all of which brilliantly showcases the firms range. It includes sixteen built projects in Europe, Asia and the United States parks, corporate headquarters, foundations, museums and urban plazas; seven works in progress, including the American Embassy in Beijing and the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City; and ten site planning and urbandesign projects, among them millennium parklands in Sydney,Australia and Novartis Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.The book opens with a short essay about the organization and philosophy of the office, the partners and associates, and the particular way that PWP practises the craft of landscape architecture. It concludes with four competitions, including one for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
