Description

Richard Haag

The work of landscape architect Richard Haag is thoroughly grounded in the landscape of the Pacific Northwest, yet it has won international recognition for its universally appreciated artistic subtlety. His two designs for the Seattle area, Bloedel Reserve and Gasworks Park, are among the most celebrated modern American landscape projects. This is the first book to explore these works in detail, both in terms of Haag's design process and of the impact of these projects on other architects.

The included essays discuss such themes as aspects of the sublime in Haag's work, the relation between Bloedel Reserve and Eastern philosophy and mysticism, and how Haag has been a mentor to other designers. Extensive black-and-white photographs of Bloedel Reserve and Gasworks Park are included, as are images of other Haag works, a complete chronology of Haag's landscape projects, and a bibliography of writings by and about Haag. Contributors include Elizabeth Meyer, associate professor and chair of landscape architecture at the University of Virginia; Patrick Condon, professor of landscape architecture at the University of British Columbia; Gary Hilderbrand, associate professor of landscape architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design; and Grant and Ilze Jones, principals of Jones & Jones Architects in Seattle.
