Beat Schlatter - Post Cards

Postcards

Beat Schlatter
The postcards in this wonderful book will make you dream.⁠ Taken mainly from the 1960's - 1980's, they come from the good old times. The times when there was no Covid-19. The times when we could fly around the world without having a bad conscience because global warming was not a thing yet - well maybe it was but nobody listened. The times when we could fry ourselves dark brown in the sun, because skin cancer was unheard of - well, maybe not in the 80's anymore, but that is not the point. The point is that this beautiful collection of postcards, the ones where someone by hand painted the sky a little bluer, will make you feel nostalgic and light. Beach promenades, hotels, gardens and fountains, cityscapes by night and Alpine roads in a 70's colour scheme bring to you a worry-free, joyful holiday mood. Because this virus maybe can take our holidays but it cannot take our dreams...⁠ Buy
Architecture Monogram #2 - Anouk Vogel

Architecture Monogram #2

Anouk Vogel
When Swiss-Dutch landscape architect Anouk Vogel got invited to take part of the Architecture Monogram series she decided to do this – yet, not without her alter ego. Vogel is used to hear both sides of the story, when she starts to think about new projects – sometimes solely within her head, sometimes as soft whisper, while one adopts the analytical tasks, the other one stays intuitive. How this on-going dialogue ‘sounds’ like can be seen and ‘listened to’ in this thoughtfully composed artist book. Thereby her inner Q&A never stands alone. Architectural designs, photographs, and material collections accompany her thoughts and probably represents best, what both sides of her brain hemispheres certainly can agree on: “I wish design could be simply the possibility of something.” - “Rather than an end product?” - “Yes”.

Pleasure Garden #4

Pleasure Garden #4

The Romance of the Trees
When we think of flora, we often think of flowers. But it is trees that stand tall and majestic, that let us climb into their tops when we are children, that make us dream and listen to our stories. It is trees that provide us soothing shade in summer, paint our cities green and as woods are an endless inspiration for stories and folklore. "The Romance of the Trees" from Ernest Wilson from 1920 remembered John Tebbs, Editor in Chief, of his long hold strong connection with trees, which is deeply rooted in his childhood. The book inspired the fourth issue of Pleasure Garden, and so we find not just Ernest Wilson, but also Walt Whitman, the Redwood Trees, palmy leaves, woody fragrances, tree climbers and Mumbai treelife.

Roberto Burle Marx Lectures

Roberto Burle Marx Lectures

Landscape as Art and Urbanism
Being one of the most important figures to shape landscape architecture, the work of Roberto Burle Marx has featured across a variety of formats and outlets. With the exception of his writings which largely remained inaccessible, until today. This book fills the gap by offering the translated lectures of the architect on such topics like the Concepts in Landscape Composition, Gardens and Ecology, and the Problem of Garden lightening, Landscapes of Brazil, and, a tribute essay to plants. Also includes a series of green landscape photos by Brazilian photographer Leonardo Finotti, showing the merging sceneries between natural landscapes and human-made beton constructions. Buy
