Designing landscapes requires a holistic approach. It also requires extensive specialist knowledge. In courses and manuals the generalist or in-depth levels are frequently under-represented, or the attempted comprehensive view becomes too complex. "Landscape for Architects" now offers a fundamental reference work which is as comprehensive as it is practical and as holistic as it is detailed.
Created in cooperation with the Architecture Department of Braunschweig Technical University, Landscape for Architects addresses the aspects of landscape architecture: "questions" are raised with abstract schematic drawings, and possible "answers" are illustrated with analytical drawings of case studies from the 20th and 21st centuries in order to inspire the reader’s own creativity and to support the design process.
The entire field of landscape design is dealt with in individual thematic volumes. The numbers of pages in the volumes differ, adding up to a total of more than 1,000 pages in five volumes, published with clear color marking as the "green block".
Each volume fully covers the respective subject and can be used on its own—compact and user-friendly. The illustrations are uniformly structured, with the guiding idea on the left-hand side and the associated drawing on the right-hand side. The drawings demonstrate how design concepts can be illustrated, and the three-language format provides an international vocabulary of design.
"Landscape for Architects is an ambitious new book by Gabriele G. Kiefer and Anika Neubauer that provides an introduction to landscape architecture through a series of questions about design, answers in the form of precedents, and hundreds of schematic drawings across five trilingual volumes: Building, Landscape, Park, Use, and Qualities." (John Hill in Wold-Architects.com, 12.2020)

"[...]La pubblicazione stimola un processo individuale d’acquisizione di conoscenza. In ogni volume un’appendice conesempi di best practices fornisce, attraverso disegni analitici di complessi progetti, una riprova delle deduzioni. Cinquelibri, cinque temi (uso, qualità, edifici, parchi e paesaggio) con testi in tre lingue (inglese, tedesco e spagnolo)compongono un sapiente compendio che non ha né inizio né fine. È un’opera aperta a progettisti, studenti o architetticompiuti." (Tancredi Capatti, 2020)
"[...]Finalmente es un haiku, que a través de la síntesis y la precisión, persigue una relación más integral entre el ser humano y la naturaleza. Un objetivo que en tiempos de cambio climático, inquietudes sociales y pandemia se vuelve cada vez más deseable." Claudio Magrini)
"[...]Schließlich ist es ein Haiku, das durch Synthese und Präzision eine ganzheitlichere Beziehung zwischen dem Menschen und der Natur verfolgt. Ein Ziel, das in Zeiten des Klimawandels, sozialer Belange und einer Pandemie zunehmend wünschenswert wird." (Claudio Magrini, übersetzt aus dem Spanischen)
