Description

Topotek 1 is one of Germany's internationally best-known landscape architecture firms. Rosemarie Trockel is currently one of Germany's most important artists; she has made a name for herself through highly unconventional works that have often been exhibited in New York, Chicago, at documenta Kassel, the Venice Biennale, and elsewhere. The new and extremely playful park in Munich is the result of a collaboration between them. It covers a 300 metre section of railroad tracks and creates urgently needed open space for the neighborhood of Theresien. In addition to the design, technically demanding questions like the approach to statics, acoustics, and traffic safety also needed to be solved. This has been achieved with an intricate and elaborate mix of gravel, pine trees, plastic, artificial turf, styrofoam, and concrete, which creates varied textures for the site.

This monograph examines the new park design in a number of essays and documents the design and production process.
