Publisher's description: A renowned American landscape architect whose New York City based studio is responsible for some of the most notable and awarded spaces internationally and throughout the United States. Thomas Balsley: Uncommon Ground is a collection of selected projects that display the sweeping range of his work over the past twenty-five years. Public and private parks, plazas, campuses, and waterfronts attest to the extraordinary level of design excellence that has defined his international reputation and that of his studio, Thomas Balsley Associates. Working within the margins of the city grids on scraps of land and post-industrial waterfronts, his unique fusion of nature, culture, and process have produced vibrant public spaces, urban miracles both large and small, provocative and sublime, and have established him as a leader and champion of the sustainable and livable urban environment. Balsley Park on Manhattan's 57th Street has been named in his honor, a testament to his substantial work in metropolises around the world. Along with popular and cultural acclaim, Balsley has also recently been selected to become the thirteenth recipient of the coveted ASLA Design Medal, in recognition of exceptional design work at a sustained and professional level.
