Traditional, great urban landscapes have helped to fullfil the needs for environmental and human health, for social and collectivised urban spaces that generates a positive quality of life in the cities. The work of MSP, the famous Martha Schwartz and their partners, demonstrates a deep commitment to this need. As people also spend most of their time outside the buildings on streets, sidewalks, utility corridors and parking lots it is also the request of MSP to bring delight, beauty, nature and playfulness to these places by their landcape design and in this way to the whole city. The book represents numerous of their projects showing the high quality of their design in texts and illustrations. Situated at the intersection of public realm, urban design and site specific art, Martha Schwartz Partners has over 35 years of experience designing and implementing installations, gardens, civic plazas, parks, institutional landscapes, corporate headquarters, master plans, and urban regeneration projects. MSP works with city leaders, planners and builders at a strategic level so as to advocate for the inclusion of the public landscape as a means to achieve environmental, economic and social sustainability. With offices in London, New York and Shanghai, the practice is engaged in projects and consultation around the globe and has to date worked on projects in over 20 countries and five continents. This monograph is the first publication to document 55 built projects and a selection of master plans by this internationally acclaimed practice.
