One of America's leading landscape architects, Peter Walker has created a variety of significant landscapes worldwide, including joint projects with architects I. M. Pei, Norman Foster, and Renzo Piano. Walker's broad field of practice includes urban design and planning and the creation of landscapes ranging in size from parks and university campuses to corporate headquarters, plazas, and private gardens.

Peter Walker and Partners/Nasher Sculpture Center Garden focuses on his garden in Dallas, Texas, a set of "outdoor galleries" showcasing the Nasher collection of modern and contemporary sculpture. A museum without a roof, the garden, with its subtle balance of art and nature, is also a serene urban park, whose beauty perfectly complements Renzo Piano's design for the center. Peter Walker's informative sketches, drawings, and plans, along with photographs of the final design, reveal the delicate balance between art, culture, and context at the heart of the Nasher Foundation Sculpture Garden.

Source Books in Landscape Architecture, produced in collaboration with the Knowlton School of Architecture at Ohio State University, provide detailed documentation of important new projects.
