Landscape Assessment for Planning and Design
BeschreibungBetween building a fort in your backyard as a youngster and studying geography in high school you probably think that you know quite a lot about the landscape. While it is true that this has probably prepared you to navigate quite effectively from place to place, if you are going to be a landscape architect there is a lot more that you need to know. When it comes to designing landscapes that are appropriate and fit into existing ecosystems it is important that you understand how the landscape formed, how the different elements in the landscape interact, and how you can quickly and effectively study the different components and apply that information in your work. Landscape Assessment for Planning and Design introduces you to the different layers in the landscape and allows you to see it with new eyes, as if for the first time. Landscape architecture students and professionals alike will benefit from the information and processes described and richly illustrated in this book.
