ISBN 0911209425 In English.
A thorough critical examination of the subtly abstract environments designed since the 1950s by noted American landscape architect Arthur Edwin Bye (b. 1919), whose works integrate early Modernist elements with the pastoral traditions of the English Landscape School. Bye's photographs of some 20 projects (primarily designs for private estates in New York and New England) are featured in the catalogue along with five essays discussing the architect's emphasis on "mood" as a determining factor in landscape design, the ecological concerns that inform his work, the various traditions reflected in his approach and his use of photography as a means of inspiration and documentation.
