Routledge, Taylor & Francis | 2007 | ISBN: 0203962087 0415404436 9780203962084 9780415404433 | 337 pages | PDF | 9 MB
This book addresses the issue of sustainability from the point of view of landscape architecture, dealing with professional practices of planners, designers and landscape managers. This edition contains updated and new material reflecting the developments in the field during the last five years, addressing the relationship between landscape architecture and sustainability in a comprehensive way.
Much in the text is underpinned by landscape ecology, in contrast to the idea of landscape as only appealing to the eye or aspiring cerebrally to be fine art. As this exceptional cast of contributors argue, landscape is and must be much more than this; landscape architecture is about making places which are biologically wholesome, socially just and spiritually rewarding.
The book establishes that the sustainability agenda needs a new mindset among professionals.
The chapters in the book move progressively from theory to practice, from the global to the local scale and from issues of policy and planning through to detailed design and implementation and on to long-term maintenance and management.
