Since the 1970s, the pioneering generation of Michel Corajoud, Alexandre Chemetoff, Gilles Clément, and Jacques Simon have brought the modern discipline of landscape architecture to the urban realm in France, along with its emphasis on a horticultural approach. Yet this urban turn has deep roots in agriculture and land management, formal gardens, and the military and civil engineering practices of the nation’s early modern period in the 18th and 19th centuries. Exploring the evolution of the discipline among French practitioners while taking stock of the multitude of forms, this issue features six canonical works by these pioneers and seventeen projects representing current trends.


168 p, ills colour & bw, 22 x 29 cm, pb, Japanese/English.
