One of Europe's most acclaimed landscape architects, Paolo Burgi is known for creating minimalist landscape interventions that powerfully reveal the essence of a place. Burgi looks beyond a site's physical boundaries and takes into account its cultural and topographical history. The latest addition to our successful Source Books in Landscape Architecture series, Paolo Burgi Landscape Architect features three of his projects in Switzerland: the Cardada Mountain revitalization in Locarno; the harbor square in Kreuzlingen; and the Terrace on the Forest in Ticino.

Paolo Burgi Landscape Architect presents enlightening discussions between landscape historian Raffaella Fabiani Giannetto and Paolo Burgi. A foreword by Sonja Dompelmann and an essay by renowned landscape architect and philosopher John Dixon Hunt round out this invaluable volume.

Raffaella Fabiani Giannetto teaches design studios and landscape architectural history and theory at the University of Maryland.
