Peter Walker, born in 1932, is one of the most seminal and prolific figures in contemporary landscape design - both as a teacher and as practitioner. His career now spans six decades. Amongst his best-known works are Nasher Sculpture Garden in Dallas, Novartis Campus in Basel and the September 11 Memorial in New York.

His "generous landscapes" are characterized by minimalist forms; theses spaces are classical but also entirely modern. Scott Melbourne’s review looks at this unique oeuvre in retrospective and pays close attention to how Walker’s urban squares and parks have fared over time. He studies the main design features and provides a comparative analysis of their effects. In the second and updated edition of this book, foreword and bibliography were revised and a subject index was added.
