Using a typological structure (landscape, park, square, garden, promenade, etc.), Günther Vogt describes the theoretical foundation on which the successful projects of Vogt Landschaftsarchitekten are based. In recent years they have realized international projects in Europe and the United States, including a new type of city park for the Tate Modern in London (with Herzog & de Meuron); an "all-weather garden” with great poetic power at the Hyatt Hotel in Zurich (with Meili, Peter Architekten); an indoor tropicalgarden for the Novartis Campus in Basel (with Diener & Diener); and the exterior spaces of the Allianz Arena in Munich (with Herzog & de Meuron).
Günther Vogt was born in Liechtenstein in 1957. Vogt Landschaftsarchitekten was formed by members of the firm Kienast Vogt & Partner in 2000. The firm’s successful collaborations with the artist Olafur Eliasson and the architects Herzog & de Meuron have been especially important in helping to establish its international reputation.
