Title Description - This book features a collection of color photographs which the author took
while walking along different European motorways. The utilitarian design of crash
barriers, rest areas, truck service stops, and sound barriers as well as the
materials they are constructed with (steel, concrete, plastics, etc.) overwhelms
what remains of the natural landscape. Indeed, as this book suggests, the
contemporary landscape is the view from the highway. Excerpts from codes and
regulations for the design of European motorways serve as an end piece, along with
an essay, Action-System-Place by Daniel Stemmrich. Text in English and German. 29
