For more than forty years, Munich–based landscape architect Peter Kluska has been guided by the idea of creating immersive experiences through the skillful manipulation of space, and his firm’s designs have been the recipients of critical praise and prestigious awards in the field. With “Urban Landscape”, Kluska draws on his considerable expertise to present a survey of international urban design. Beginning with an overview of the practical aspects of landscape architecture, he considers a range of topics, including spatial construction, the value of open space, and the critical role of music, nature, and art. Throughout, the essays are accompanied by full-color photographs exemplifying the ideas discussed. Kluska presents a survey of his own firm’s impressively diverse body of work, including commissioned works, like the Cabinet Garden in Munich and the 1983 International Horticultural Show, and works conceived for competition—many in collaboration with other renowned landscape architects. The development of urban space is of great importance in shaping the experiences of all who visit or reside there, and “Urban Landscape” will be of interest to students and scholars of landscape architecture, art, and urban planning.
