The different ways of understanding the landscape and the art of gardens by a well-known landscape architect. In the last two decades a new generation of landscape architects has definitively emerged together with a new and more aware clientele that is beginning to see the design of open spaces as an extraordinary environmental and civic resource. Designing the landscape in order to transform and develop the environment surrounding us: this is how the architect and landscape designer Patrizia Pozzi sees her work. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs, drawings and plans, this publication presents her recent projects divided into four sections: Energy landscape (eco-sustainability and bio-compatibility), Inhabiting nature (landscape as a source of inspiration and integration), New trends (new dynamics in approaching public space and daily life) and Nursery (sustainability and integration between architecture and open spaces), and leads the reader through an endless series of beautiful landscapes designed with care and natural understanding. What emerges is the philosophy of a person who wants to get her hands dirty with a project, developing it in meticulous detail and lending value to the transformation of contemporary landscape from its most poetic aspect, focussing on sustainability and the use of innovative materials. With all its different scales and variations, the landscape is conceived and constructed as an active resource for the future, an authentic and extremely powerful source of renewal for a reality urgently in need of quality and beauty in every place we inhabit.
