Item description for Moving Horizons: The Landscape Architecture of Kathryn Gustafson and Partners by Jane Amido, Aaron Betsky & Jane Amidon...
US American landscape designer Kathryn Gustafson has earned an outstanding international reputation. The recently opened Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, London, is the latest in a long list of acclaimed projects realised together with her partners Gustafson Porter (London) and Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (Seattle), including the Arthur Ross Terrace of the American Museum of Natural History (New York), Chicago's New Millenium Garden, the Great Glass House interior (Wales), the Amsterdam Westergasfabriek park and the Garden of Forgiveness in Beirut.
The 30 international projects portrayed in Moving Horizons exemplify Gustafson's distinctive and highly artistic style, characterised by sensual, sculptural forms, and her cooperation with architects such as Norman Foster, Ian Ritchie, Mecanoo, Jean-Paul Viguier and Renzo Piano.
Recognition of the significance of her work has also come in the form of numerous awards, including the Chrysler Design Award, and selection for New York MoMA's forthcoming exhibition "Groundswell. Constructing the Contemporary Landscape".

Multifaceted Nov 10, 2006
This book not only provides great photos of Kathryn's built works, but it describes and shows her design process, as well as the transitions her practice went through as it grew. Well worth the read and great to have in the design library.
