The union of the disciplines of landscape design and environmental installation have created a new hybrid of art and design. This catalog documents four site-specific, Bay Area based projects, temporary and experimental, commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. With the common theme of exploring and revealing the "edge of the urban scene" the site designers interpret "edge" to mean more than physical demarcations between urban/suburban and urban /rural. In these installations, the designers suggest the boundaries and spaces created by the emotional, socio-economic and cultural threads in the urban fabric. With essays by Aaron Betsky (former curator at SFMOMA), Leah Levy, and Dean MacCannell, critics of environmental design, landscape architecture and site-specific installations. Featured designers are Kathryn Gustafson, Hargreaves Associates, Hood Design, and Tom Leader studio. Dimension: 10 x 93/4 inches, Exhibition Catalog includes 80 color reproductions.
