Synopsis: The third and final volume on the life work of the charismatic landscape architect Dieter Kienast. The landscape designs of Dieter Kienast have a great lyrical quality. By reducing his designs to a few essential elements and principles, Kienast skilfully plays with opposing factors such as the natural and the artificial, order and chaos. The continual juxtaposition of town and country, rationalism and romanticism, garden history and modern art, have, by their very simplicity, the power to move. Through his wide range of materials, encompassing not only plants, but also steel, concrete and glass, and with the cooperation of architects and artists, Dieter Kienast creates spaces which are sensitive to the mood of modern times, and bear witness to them. Amongst the projects included in this volume are the International Horticultural Show in Graz 2000, the EXPO2000 in Hanover and the landscaping around the Tate Modern in London. Dieter Kienast (1945-1998) was one of the most important exponents in contemporary landscape architecture. He was Professor in Rapperswil from 1980-91, in Karisruhe from 1992-97 and from 1997, he was Professor at the ETH Zurich. Despite his untimely death in 1998, his international reputation is undisputed.
