Overview: 

Holding to the highest standards of technical craft to create problem-solving landscapes that attain artful expression, Peter Walker and Partners (PWP) is responsible for some of the most beautiful iconic works of landscape architecture in the world. This book features projects since 1997 that show the range of the firm’s work, including sixteen built projects in the United States, Europe, and Asia (parks, corporate headquarters, foundations, museums, and urban plazas), seven works in progress (including the American Embassy in Beijing and the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City), ten site-planning and urban-design projects (including Millennium Parklands in Sydney, Australia, and Novartis Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland). The book opens with a short essay about the organization and philosophy of the office, the partners, associates, and the particular way that PWP artfully practices the craft of landscape architecture. It concludes with four competitions, including one for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
