Grounds for Review
Liverpool University Press

The post-war garden festival concept, originating in Germany, has moved beyond the Netherlands and Great Britain, with versions adopted elsewhere in Europe, as well as North America and Asia. Despite the scope of design styles, themes, and follow-on development reflective of cultural trends and site contingencies, these events have tended to remain primarily horticultural exhibitions followed by new urban parks. This chapter discusses the Paris Floralies Internationale, 1969; the Wiener Internationale Gartenschau, 1974; the Grün '80, Basle; the AmeriFlora '92; the Expo '90, Osaka; the Les Floralies Internationales de Montréal, 1980; and the Expo '99, Kunming, China.
