- "Michel Desvigne is one of the most eminent French landscape architects working today. His projects are synonymous with a strong strategic and conceptual component, influenced by insights from geography. Infrastructure projects also play an important role in his work - they underscore the competence of landscape architecture in matters of city and territory planning." "This book documents the key elements of Desvigne's work such as processes of transformation, geography, territory, urban structures, and public squares. Each of these themes is vividly illustrated by selected projects, including the landscaping for Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, the French Ministry of Culture in Paris, and Keio University in Tokyo."--BOOK JACKET.
