Alexandre Chemetoff, architect, urban planner and landscaper, is committed to practising his trade freely. He develops his projects by visiting the sites, walking them and connecting them with other experiences. Between September 2007 and December 2008, several personalities were invited to accompany him, on one visit each. Their spontaneous conversations form the core of this book, which covers a selection of his projects, singular and yet representative of his approach. Each discussion is linked to a location and particular date. The words exchanged are on the spur of the moment and follow the rhythm of the visitors’ footsteps. Includes a DVD that captures the five visits on film (in French with English subtitles).About the Author:
Alexandre Chemetoff was born in Paris in 1950 and completed his studies at the École Nationale Supérieure d Horticulture in Versailles.

The French landscape architect, city planner, and architect Alexandre Chemetoff (b. 1950) achieved international renown for his 'Jardin de Bambou' at the Parc de la Villette in Paris and his design of a park in Villejuif. Visits takes a close-up look at his work of the last fifteen years, not, however, in the form of a traditional monograph. Instead, Chemetoff visits the sites of five of his major works: Blanquefort/Bordeaux, Ile de Nantes, Angouleme, Vallee de la Bievre/Paris, Grenoble, Nancy, and Rennes. He is accompanied on his visits by conversation partners who are recognized experts in the field: Dominique Alba, Jean-Louis Cohen, Christophe Girot, Patrick Henry, Alain Leveille, Sebastien Marot, and Michel Velly. In this way, the principal themes of Chemetoff's creative work come up for discussion in a lively, critical, and fascinating manner. It is especially illuminating to discover how well a given project has stood the test of time, how it has changed over the years, and what Chemetoff would do differently today.
