Distinctively Dieter Kienast: his gardens, parks, cemeteries and enclosures bear the unmistakeable imprint of his blend of nature and artifice, order and chaos, geometry and organic forms -- sometimes stringent, sometimes playful, and not without irony. This special edition brings together a selection of his most significant creations drawn from the highly successful three volume Birkhauser edition of his complete works. Udo Weilacher, landscape architect and lecturer at the University of Hannover, illuminates Kienast's accomplishments and his influence in an accompanying essay.
