Leberecht Migge is one of the best known - and least known garden designers of classical modernism. As a protagonist or even originator of landscape architecture in tune with innovative and socially involved building, he promoted that every household should have a garden. All his design work was deemed lost until recently, so that his oeuvre was accessible only in publications.

In a spectacular discovery, the Archive of Swiss Landscape Architecture has found 322 sketches, drawings and plans of all kinds by Leberecht Migge, comprising also hitherto unknown designs for private gardens. A relevant selection of this original material is published here for the first time, in best-quality presentation.

The volume is rounded off by an assessment of the significance of these designs.
