Large format. Publisher's description: For many years Rainer Schmidt Landschaftsarchitekten + Stadtplaner have been among the leading offices in the fields of landscape and urban planning; the projects are also increasingly being realized internationally, above all in North Africa, the Middle East and China. The company's overriding objective is to find answers to the urban-planning problems of today, and to do so in the awareness that 21st century landscape architecture should be a "built" reflection on how people deal with one another and with nature. In various essays the book addresses the central topics in Schmidt's work and documents some 40 selected projects including the highlight Business Towers in Munich, the Park City Schwabing, the Congress Center Doha and the Great Mosque of Algiers.
