Urban Oasis

Parks and Green Projects around the World

Parks and Green Projects around the World

Current topic in times of climate change and steadily growing cities, green projects for a liveable urban future.

The only illustrated book to combine relevant greening projects and inspiring city park impressions.

With texts by travel and sustainability journalist Jessica Jungbauer.

Not just since the pandemic have city dwellers probably realised what a luxury a park nearby is. When you're not allowed more than a few hundred metres from your own home, the smallest green space becomes a paradise. But climate change is threatening these idyllic places in the middle of the noisy, fine-dust-polluted big city. Innovative projects and forward-thinking urban planners are supposed to provide a remedy to prepare the growing cities for the future and make them liveable. Urban Oases is dedicated to 20 green projects for a better city life, covering topics such as the slow flower movement, the agricultural use of urban roofs, the greening of former industrial sites and the restoration of listed parks. From New York's High Line to Paris' Pleinair organic flower farm to Berlin's neo-baroque Körnerpark, the parks and projects featured in this visually stunning book are all inspiring.
