Leberecht Migge: the original landscape designs
(1000 items available)
Gardens for everyman! was the central credo of Leberecht Migge (1881-1935), one of the most influential landscape architects of the twentieth century. His estate was thought to be lost until the discovery of more than 300 original plans and drawings in the Archives of Swiss Landscape Architecture. This book presents numerous projects, many previously unknown, ranging from large-scale plans for housing settlements to detailed designs for luxurious private gardens. Introductions to the historical period and to Migge’s ideas put the plans in context. Indices of persons, places and plant names complement the text and illustrations. Two plans, reprinted at original size, accompany this volume.
