The nature of Landscape, A Personal Quest
010 Publishers Rotterdam – 2001
‘The nature of Landscape’ has been written with a international audience in mind.
The book gives an unorthodox overview of movements, trends and design schools in park architecture, landscape planning, urban design and art. A central feature in the book’s theory development is “Lorzing’s Diamond”. The four corners of the diamond refer to different perceptions of our environment: the Rational, the Romantic, the Traditional and the Ecological View. The Diamond has been quoted regularly in academic publications.
