Lutzow 7 own their reputation of long standing to the representative civic open spaces that they have designed for the German Chancellery, the Reichstag building and the Jewish Museum in Berlin, among many others.
Yet their design approach of "representative tranquility", as one of the book's contributions is entitled, has produced about one thousand projects over the years - seven of which, more exactly 5 built + 2 under construction, from Germany, Belgium, Italy and Ireland, form one of the main parts in this landscape-architectural monograph. Other sections strive to grasp the essence of Lutzow 7`s approach to landscape design in a panoramic portfolio and also in a directory to important design tasks and typical solutions in the realm between wilderness and detail.
Tom Sieverts, the creator of the "in-between city" paradigm, and Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Canadian pioneer of the return to nature-oriented design and well acquainted with the partners Cornelia Muller and Jan Wehberg's work, contribute their personal views.
