Landscape architect Guido Hagar presents a provocative collection of essays on his international practice in landscape design and urban planning. His firm’s far-ranging works, lavishly illustrated, have provided him with a wealth of experience on different topics. The themes under consideration in this volume of documentation of his theories are historic garden conservation; issues to consider in public works; commercial buildings and residential developments; and lastly, private gardens. Those interested in the field of historic preservation will find his comments on the subject intriguing.
