Ken Smith is one of the most interesting voices in landscape architecture today. His works reflect the intensity and energy of their surroundings and challenge the distinction between landscape and art. Ken Smith Landscape Architect/Urban Projects focuses on three prominent works in New York City: the East River Ferry Landings, P.S. 19, and a roof garden for the Museum of Modern Art. Featuring an interview with Ken Smith and extensive photographic documentation and drawings, as well as an essay by Nina Rappaport and a foreword by Peter Reed, the book reveals how each project expresses new relationships between landscape and place within the city
