About this book

American landscape architect, Dan Kiley, has transformed the landscapes of private houses, public institutions and vast urban spaces into magnificent places of natural beauty. Produced with the collaboration of Dan Kiley himself, this monograph considers the man and his oeuvre. Kiley sets out his working practices in an introduction that draws together decades of experience and a deep knowledge of nature. At the heart of the book are his most significant projects, grouped by the themes that have shaped his career. Each project features numerous photographs and plans, special sketches by Kiley, and accompanying texts. A reference section with an illustrated chronology and bibliography round off the book.


A tangible order - line, grid, circle and square; the nature of context - heart and spine, connection and transition; space with place - unity, mystery and infinity; the measure of magic - sun, shadow, stone and water; new horizons - the urban landscape; complete works and projects; three manifestos; vita.
