FREDERICK LAW OLMSTED

DESIGNING THE AMERICAN LANDSCAPE

di BEVERIDGE C. E. ROCHELEAU P.
Editore: RIZZOLI INTERNATIONAL  (2021)

Descrizione

A landscape architect, city planner, and creative genius who transformed the American landscape, Frederick Law Olmsted was a man of passionate vision. He defined the profession of landscape architecture and designed America s most beloved parks and landscapes, many of them gorgeously illustrated here, including New York s Central Park, Brooklyn s Prospect Park, the U.S. Capitol grounds, and the lands and gardens of the Biltmore Estate. During a remarkable forty-year career that began in the mid-1800s, Olmsted created the first park systems, urban greenways, and suburban residential communities in this country. A comprehensive view of the man and his work, the new edition includes new photography of Olmsted s masterworks Central and Prospect Parks, as well as a new introduction and new final chapter by the author that examines Olmsted s ongoing influence.
