Israeli landscape architects have been integral to their country's development, designing places that have become symbolic icons of the nation. The Valley of the Destroyed Communities at Yad Vashem, Haas-Sherover Promenade in Jerusalem, Ben Gurion's gravesite at Sde Boker, Yarkon Park of Tel Aviv, all of Israel's national parks, university campuses, most kibbutzim and even entire cities have been designed and planned by Israel's landscape architects. Yet despite their unique contribution to the nation's identity, their work is largely unknown outside Israel. "Dreaming Gardens" provides a framework for understanding the contributions of landscape architecture in the creation of Israel. The development of the landscape architecture profession in Israel paralleled the development of the state, as immigrants brought skills and ideas from the Diaspora, creating a unique opportunity for designers to help shape their national identity. This book charts the shifting attiudes of this singular culture towards its land, landscapes, communities and nation.
