Gustav Ammann is considered one of the most important garden architects of the 20th century in Switzerland. As an acknowledged expert at home and abroad, he not only provided constant impetus in discussions and pioneered new ideas, but also worked as a designer of extraordinary parks and gardens with which he wanted to create green counter-worlds or – in his own words – ‘a beautiful, delightful island in the gears of everyday life’.
