Lost Landscapes is a book about LOLA’s views and experience with regard to landscape, nature and leisure activities. The book identifies and describes the recurring similarities between divergent landscape projects and links these similarities to essays by Erik de Jong, Paul Roncken, René van der Velde, Eric Frijters and Olv Klein.

In three chapters, LOLA takes three different paths from the city into the landscape of the 21st century: over Life Lines, along The Long Tail of Leisure, to end up dwelling through The Fat of the Land. LOLA landscape architects argue for innovative linear landscapes, cosmopolitan nature and landscapes in which human experience takes central stage.
