Praguescape

Contemporary Landscape Architecture in Prague's Public Spaces

PRAGUESCAPE introduces the distinctive landscape architecture projects realized in Prague in the last thirty years, not just to the citizens of Prague, but also to other visitors from Czech Republic as well as foreign lands. While multiple books on the subject of building architecture are published each year, there isn't one that would map the realized projects of contemporary landscape architecture in the way the field is viewd today. This publication loosely follows books Czechscape and New Face of Prague.
