During the last twenty years, landscape design has attracted increasing attention in the world of architecture and design. This is partly a reflection of the tremendous rise in public respect for the environment and partly due to the appearance of a new set of patrons: business corporations and government bodies. Projects vary from prestigious business centers, city squares, and museums to parks and gardens for recreation. Variety is very much a distinguishing characteristic of the forty case studies included in Designing the New Landscape. They range from urban landscaping constructed almost entirely from hard materials for corporate clients to highly individual private gardens, created with traditional planting. An incisive foreword by the doyen of modern landscape architects, the late Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, complements an authoritative introduction by the author that examines the changing practices of landscaping in the postwar years and relates them to the time-honored values of the western landscape tradition. Each case study is fully illustrated with photographs, plans, and models, making Designing the New Landscape required reading for all architects specializing in landscape design, and a vitally important addition to the literature of landscaping.
