Landscape architecture mediates between nature and buildings in its task to develop open spaces into habitats for people. Today, this task implies ecological problem solving in addition to aesthetics. Fruitful combination of organic and constructed environments results in communicative spaces of great social sig- nificance. Using high-quality image material, detailed plans and explanatory texts, the pres-ent volume looks across the full spectrum of contemporary landscape architecture. In addition to the classical fields of gardens and parks, the book also examines the latest trends like green faÂ§ades, interior gardens and land art. Collection: Land-scape Architecture is a refreshing and informative tour of green oases around the world.
