Landscape Architecture Europe #4


Landscape Architecture Europe - Booklaunch

We are happy to announce that 'The Chain of Public Art Interventions developed on the Site of the Palotanegyed' as the master project to underpin Dominika Tihanyi's dissertation entitled 'The Role of Creative Strategies and Public Art in the Course of City Rehabilitation' was selected as a project shown in detail in the 4th edition of the Landscape Architecture Europe book series.

Due to this the book launch will be held in Budapest at FUGA - Center for Architecture on 9th May.

New book on European landscape architecture: 44 projects selected

On May 9 2015 the 4th edition in the Landscape Architecture Europe book series will be presented in Budapest. As the previous books this book too aspires to be the critical review of the state of the art of European landscape architecture. It observes current world views and corresponding design approaches in European landscape architecture. The book launch takes place at FUGA – Center for Architecture.
Out of 500 projects an international jury of professionals (Paolo Bürgi (chair), Monika Gora, Jandirk Hoekstra, Thierry Kandjee, Laura Zampieri) selected 44 projects of outstanding quality. The book is edited by Lisa Diedrich (editor-in-chief), Jessica Bridger, Mark Hendriks and Claudia Moll.
