Book Description:

A familiarity with the work of Bernard Lassus, the leading French landscape architect, is essential for anyone seriously interested in contemporary landscape experience and design. Now, with this first collection of his writings to be translated into English, the contributions of Lassus can finally be fully appreciated by a wider audience.

Perhaps best known for the speculative base that sustains his work and thought, Lassus is an artist whose philosophical concerns precede and determine his design work. For him, attention to the interactive nature of the landscape underlies all projects. He approaches each site in pursuit of the particular opportunities and challenges it presents and is ever mindful of the way in which observers will experience the space. He does not allow experience to be relegated to by product of design. Instead, as one of his close collaborators explained, for Lassus 'form is not primary, it is induced from the articulation of intention.'

The essays in The Landscape Approach afford readers a look into some of Lassus's most important projects the Butterfly Bridge at Istres, the highway rest area at Nimes Caissargues, the Park of Duisburg Nord, the Garden of Returns for the Corderie Royale at Rochefort, and the Tuileries in Paris and furnish provocative insight into Lassus's unique bonding of theory and practice. As is the case with his garden designs, Bernard Lassus's volume is a true experience. It is sure to become a classic in the field.
