A spectacular global survey of the buildings 'greening' the world's cities, whose conception and realization bring architecture and horticulture into a sustainable whole.


Concrete horizons, urban sprawl, high-density living: never have our cities and their buildings been in greater need of greening. Yet what’s required is more than an occasional vertical garden or living roof. Featuring seventy projects from around the world – some built, some ongoing, some from the future – Garden City looks at the increasingly inventive ways in which architects and designers are incorporating nature into the built environment, transforming the city for the benefit of all.

Anna Yina is co-founder and editor-in-chief of Monitor magazine. She has curated a number of international architecture and design exhibitions, incling shows on Zaha Hadid and Jakob & MacFarlane, both represented in this book. Yina is also the author of Phase: The Architecture of Jakob & MacFarlane and Eske Rex: Silent Action.
