RUST RED - The Landscape Park Duisburg-Nord


Peter Latz

“Approach, Structures, Methods, Places, Visions” – five chapters detail the transformation of the Meiderich Iron Works into one of the most spectacular parks of our time. Peter Latz depicts his work on this internationally influential project with impressive images and offers insights into his theoretical design approach and its practical implementation. Karl Ganser, director of IBA Emscher Park and Marc Treib, architectural historian from Berkeley together with scientists, colleagues and park managers broaden the view of this fascinating landscape which springs from its industrial past.
