Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Landscapearchitecture can be more than aesthetically innovative: it cancontribute to integration in society, social stability, and avibrant public life. But how does a park become an intensively usedstage, a well-visited everyday location? What constitutes the "boon oflife" (Jane Jacobs)? And what makes a park urban?
The Park amGleisdreieck in Berlin--developed between 2007 and 2014--was initiated bycitizens and built in dialogue with them. This publication presents theprinciples underlying its design. They form a toolbox for big cityparks that can be used in diverse ways, stimulate interaction, andappeal to the senses. Furthermore, the book situates the park withinthe contemporary work of landscape architecture and shows how visitorsperceive the park and its atmospheres. Overall, this work lays out thedesign elements that model a successful citizens' park in thetwenty-first century: Many voices have contributed to its development;its design is dynamically complex, and the park invites change andappropriation.
