The Olympic Park in Munich is one of his best-known projects, and his entire oeuvre is trend-setting and timeless: the landscape architect Günther Grzimek (1915 - 1996) was committed to a new form of urban green in Germany, namely a "democratic green". At the same time, he advocated for a practice-oriented education in landscape architecture.

Grzimek's biography is a source of numerous discoveries, leading through West German history, as well as through his "collaborations" with renowned architects, urban planners, and designers, including Otl Aicher, who developed the basic design for this publication together with Grzimek in the 1980s. With plans, images, texts, and original quotations, the volume opens up a new perspective on this outstanding teacher and illuminates the turbulent history of landscape architecture in Germany from the 1930s in Berlin to the 1990s in Munich.
