Imbert and Cruse’s Novartis Project Included in Parks of the 21st Century

The Novartis Square and Pavilion designed by Knowlton School Director Dorothée Imbert and Associate Professor of Architecture Andrew Cruse appears in a new book by Victoria Newhouse and Alex Pisha.

Knowlton School Director Dorothée Imbert and Associate Professor of Architecture Andrew Cruse’s project for Novartis in Basel, Switzerland has been included as part of Victoria Newhouse and Alex Pisha’s (MCRP MLA ’16) new book, Parks of the 21st Century: Reinvented Landscapes, Reclaimed Territories. The Novartis Square and Pavilion “transformed a site of pharmaceutical production into a hub for research.”

Parks of the 21st Century presents 52 parks in the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Europe, and China that have turned despoiled and polluted land (including former factories, railroads, and industrial waterfronts) into beneficial landscapes.

Landscape architects have been referred to as “the first environmentalists,” and Parks of the 21st Century shows how parks are being designed as proactive, dynamic green spaces.
