Beschreibung

Kongjian Yu und sein Büro Turenscape sind zweifelsohne das heute wichtigste Büro für Landschaftsarchitektur in China. Seine Entwurfshaltung wird geprägt von der Wertschätzung des Gewöhnlichen und von Alltagsdingen und einer tiefen Akzeptanz der Natur, auch in ihren bedrohlichen Aspekten, wie Überschwemmungen. Dieses Buch geht den zentralen Themen in Yus Werk in 11 Essays bekannter Autoren nach und dokumentiert 22 ausgewählte Projekte.

Anmerkung

Kongjian Yu: Chinas bedeutendster Landschaftsarchitekt Kongjian Yu and his office Turenscape are beyond doubt the foremost landscape architecture firm in China today. The vast scale of China and its apparently boundless growth have enabled Yu to test many ideas that are still largely theories in the Western world. His work, increasingly valued and appreciated in Europe and North America, has attained an extremely high and elegant level in both conception and execution. Kongjian Yu is known for his ecological stance, often against the resistance of local authorities. His guiding design principles are the appreciation of the ordinary and a deep embracing of nature, even in its potentially destructive aspects, such as floods. Among his most acclaimed projects are Houtan Park for Shanghai Expo, the Red Ribbon Park in Qinhuangdao, and Shipyard Park in Zhongshan. This book explores Yus work in some ten essays by noted authors and extensively documents some 18 selected projects.
