This book features work since 1997 that brilliantly showcases the firm's range, including sixteen built projects in Europe, Asia and the United States - parks, corporate headquarters, foundations, museums and urban plazas; seven works in progress, including the American Embassy in Beijing and the World Trade Center Memorial in New York City; and ten site planning and urban-design projects, among them millennium parklands in Sydney, Australia and Novartis Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland.
The book opens with a short essay about the organization and philosophy of the office, the partners and associates, and the particular way that PWP practises the craft of landscape architecture. It concludes with four competitions, including one for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
