Abstract:

"Large Parks examines an increasingly hard-to-define landscape type: the urban park. By viewing such landscapes through the lens of size, the essays contained here cut across conventional binary categories of classification - historic or contemporary, built or unbuilt, competition-sponsored or commissioned - and enable us to analyze landscapes not usually considered collectively. From a discussion of historic parks such as New York's Central Park and Paris's Bois de Boulogne, to intriguing new projects such as the Orange County Great Park in California, Large Parks highlights the intricacies that go into designing these massive and culturally significant works. By analyzing design, concept, construction, and technique, Large Parks gives designers concrete insight into the complicated task of designing a large park that is structured enough to give form, identity, and meaning to the site, but pliant enough to adapt to changing ecologies, demands, and uses. Editors Julia Czerniak and George Hargreaves present writings by leading academics and practitioners, along with original graphics and photographs, foregrounding a set of preoccupations in landscape discourse that relate in complex ways, such as ecology, public space, process, place, site, and the city."--BOOK JACKET.
