Hidden Landscapes is  about gardens developed into a new typology of metropolitan landscape architecture and shows how small scale public spaces become important alternatives in a worldwide process of urbanisation. The enclosed garden remained at the horizon. 

This book offers possibilities to experience (smaller) rest spaces on the scale of human and physical perception. The garden is the classical example in making a landscape expressive and can structure urban conditions at the same time. With six prototypes: The Tofuku-ji Hojo gardens in Kyoto (1938), St. Catherine's College Quadrangle in Oxford (1959), Paley Park in Manhattan (1967), de Reflection Garden, Seattle (1979), the Jardin de Crazannes Garden and Jardin des Oiseaux, along the motorway in France (1993), and the Wasserkrater garden in Bad Oeynhausen in Germany (1997).

This book is the elaborated and edited version of Saskia de Wit's PhD thesis.
