In the 1990s the landscape architect Peter Latz and his team designed and executed a park that transcended all fashions and trends. This volume provides insights into twelve years of planning and realisation through photographs, sketches, plans and explanations, and reveals to the reader a fascinating world in the footsteps of industry. The Landscape Park Duisburg Nord is one of the most remarkable examples worldwide of an intelligent and appealing approach to dealing with the legacy of industry. In his vision for the park Peter Latz largely abandoned the concept of landscape art and of the beautification of agricultural and woodland organisational patterns. Instead, he focused on the information-rich web of urban infrastructure and industry. Peter Latz presents the first in-depth account of his knowledge and experience regarding this unique project in this book. Texts by renowned collaborators complement the narrative with differing perspectives.
