Picking up on architecture’s tradition of teaching professional experience to students through conversation, this book provides insight into the ideas, methods, and memories of Günther Vogt, and questions the attitude that this innovative landscape architect adopts towards his profession.

With reference to five different locations, Günther Vogt speaks about current themes of landscape architecture and its relationship to architecture and the city, about his teaching at the ETH Zürich, and about the work of Vogt Landscape Architects; he describes his perception of the lanscape as a cabinet of curiostities, tells how he collects various phenomena and individual elements, relates them to each other and rearranges them. And in the reader’s mind’s eye unfolds a cosmos, in which the lack of wholeness of "the landscape" seems to be a gain rather than a loss.
