One of the projects in the book is Tree Museum Wateringse Veld, The Hague, by heman de vries for which I supplied a photograph in the book. Other projects in this book are Brown Roof Laban Dance Center, London, by Herzog & De Meuron and Vogt Landscape Architects, Eden Bio, Paris by Maison Éduard François and Crinkle Crankle Wall Distripark Eemhaven, Rotterdam by Krijn Giezen & Roel Bakker.
