Günter Grzimek: Planning, Design. Program



ISBN: 9783777440187 Category:


The Olympiapark in Munich is one of the most famous projects of the landscape architect Günther Grzimek (1915-1996), yet his entire oeuvre has proved to be pioneering and timeless.

He advocated for a new form of urban green space in Germany, a “demokratisches Grün” (democratic green space), while also campaigning for practice-oriented training in landscape architecture.

Grzimek’s biography offers a wellspring of new discoveries. It traverses the history of modern Germany and encompasses his collaborations with famous architects, town planners, and designers – including Otl Aicher, who developed the basic outline of this volume together with Grzimek in the 1980s. Featuring plans, images, texts, and excerpts from Grzimek’s own writings, this comprehensive new book offers a vivid and in-depth encounter with this major innovator and illustrates the lively history of landscape architecture in Germany from the 1930s in Berlin to the 1990s in Munich.
