Georges Descombes' landscapes are characterised by an intensive investigation of the qualities and history of the site, deriving their vocabularies from the existing characteristics of the place. His best-known works are the Bijlmer Memorial in Amsterdam, the Parc de Lancy in Geneva, and the Swiss Path around Lake Uri in Switzerland. Current projects include the Parc de la Cour du Maroc in Paris, a riverfront park in Lyon, and the transformation of the River Aire outside Geneva.
