The first volume in our new Modern Landscapes: Transition and Transformation series, Lawrence Halprin's Skyline Park showcases the acclaimed landscape designer's urban renewal effort for downtown Denver in the 1970s. Drawing on the rugged beauty of the city's natural surroundings for inspiration, Halprin created a signature landmark of sunken fountains, walls, and berms that served as an urban promenade and an oasis from the surrounding streets. This monograph honors the legacy of Halprin's original work by presenting the most complete documentation available of the park's conception, construction, and use before its total redesign in 2003.
