Описание: One of the foremost objectives of landscape architectural design is to impart an organizational order in the landscape. Heavily illustrated, this enlightening book introduces the basic elements and principles of design, and then explores the spatial language used to organize and shape landscape architectural design. With more than five hundred hand-rendered graphics and over 150 photographs, this book offers students, professionals and life-long learners a complete introduction to the visual language that is the underpinning of landscape architectural design.
Описание: Designs for gardens and landscapes need to contain accurate information to ensure that both the designer’s intent is clear and to enable the highest quality constructions. This book contains the elements most often used when detailing surfaces, with key information on standards, guidance and construction that the practitioner must be aware of. Alongside the text are 2D and 3D images with suggestions of measurements, design considerations and materials. Key topics covered in this book are: Vehicular paving Pedestrian paving and patios Steps and ramps Margins, edges and kerbs Drainage channels To be used in conjunction with the book is an innovative online library of freely downloadable CAD (SketchUp format) details which link directly to those in the book. These details are available for the reader to edit, adapt and use in their own designs - and make the task of detailing for projects that little bit easier.

This inspiring and thought-provoking book explores how recent innovations in landscape architecture have uniquely positioned the practice to address complex issues and technologies that affect our built environment. The changing and expanding nature of "landscape" make it more important than ever for landscape architects to seek innovation as a critical component in the forward development of a contemporary profession that merges expansive ideas and applications.
The editors bring together leading contributors who are experts in new and pioneering approaches and technologies within the fields of academic and professional landscape architecture. The chapters explore digital technology, design processes and theoretical queries that shape the contemporary practice of landscape architecture. Topics covered include:
Fabrication and prototyping
Visualization of data
Concluding the book are case studies looking at the work of two landscape firms (PEG and MYKD) and two academic departments (Illinois Institute of Technology and the Rhode Island School of Design), which together show the novel and exciting directions that landscape is already going in.

Defining a research question, describing why it needs to be answered and explaining how methods are selected and applied are challenging tasks for anyone embarking on academic research within the field of landscape architecture. Whether you are an early career researcher or a senior academic, it is essential to draw meaningful conclusions and robust answers to research questions.
Research in Landscape Architecture provides guidance on the rationales needed for selecting methods and offers direction to help to frame and design academic research within the discipline. Over the last couple of decades the traditional orientation in landscape architecture as a field of professional practice has gradually been complemented by a growing focus on research. This book will help you to develop the connections between research, teaching and practice, to help you to build a common framework of theory and research methods. Bringing together contributions from landscape architects across the world, this book covers a broad range of research methodologies and examples to help you conduct research successfully. Also included is a study in which the editors discuss the most important priorities for the research within the discipline over the coming years. This book will provide a definitive path to developing research within landscape architecture.
Описание: Bridging the gap between traditional analog and new digital tools by applying timeless concepts of representation to enhance design work in digital media, this book explores specific techniques for creating landscape designs, including digitally rendered plans, perspectives, diagrams, and more.

Описание: This book defines over 5000 terms relating to architectural design, history, and technology. It provides concise, accurate definitions illustrated with finely detailed, hand-rendered drawings, each executed in Mr. Ching`s signature style.
Описание: This one-stop reference guides landscape architects in every aspect of their business practice. It introduces landscape architecture students to professional practice topics and serves as a sourcebook for emerging professionals looking to start and manage their own firms.
Описание: For several years, pencil, pen, markers, and watercolor have been the principal tools of representation for landscape architects and urban planners. Those hand-powered aids have been replaced by computers and Computer-aided design (CAD). This title shows you how to apply the concepts of representation to enhance your design work in digital media.

Описание: Offers an introduction to the concepts of sustainability and how they apply to landscape architecture. This book presents the ecological, social, and cultural aspects of a site as well as the critical phases of the design process, such as site analysis, program development, and design development, with a focus on sustainability.
What have cultural anthropologists, historical geographers, landscape ecologists and environmental artists got in common? Along with eight other disciplines, from domains as diverse as planning and design, the arts and humanities as well as the social and natural sciences, they are all fields of importance to the theory and practice of landscape architecture.
In the context of the EU funded LE: NOTRE Project, carried out under the auspices of ECLAS, the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools, international experts from a wide range of related fields were asked to reflect, each from their own perspective, on the interface between their discipline and landscape architecture. The resulting insights presented in this book represent an important contribution to the development the discipline of landscape architecture, as well as suggesting new ways in which future collaboration can help to create a greater interdisciplinary richness at a time when the awareness of the importance of the landscape is growing across a wide range of disciplines.
Exploring the Boundaries of Landscape Architecture is the first systematic attempt to explore the territory at the boundaries of landscape architecture. It addresses academics, professionals and students, not just from landscape architecture but also from its neighbouring discipline, all of whom will benefit from a better understanding their areas of shared interest and the chance to develop a common language with which to converse.

Описание: All landscapes are complex systems which are continually changing as a result of relatively simple interactions. This condition of adaption and evolution is called emergence. Related to chaos theory and self-organising systems, emergence highlights the ever changing and developing urban and natural world – and the need to work flexibly within this. Just as an aborist must understand the development and functions of a tree in order to fully understand his actions in relation to it, so must a landscape architect understand the ecological functions of a specific terrain in order to appreciate how the landscape will respond to the conditions he establishes. This bottom-up approach is essential when dealing with the natural environment – and, as Barnett argues, the urban environment. Covering critically the theory behind emergence in landscape architecture, the author also uses practical examples from international landscapes as a key tool in his mission to explain the basis of emergence and how it is essential to our understanding of both urban and natural systems. Ideal for students and educators in landscape architecture, landscape urbanism and architectural theory, this book provides a full discourse on the theory and practice behind emergence in landscape and features full colour images.
