Abstract:

"This comprehensive visual reference presents the full range of landscape architecture practice, from traditional subjects to contemporary applications. The projects are organized by the type of firm, and each firm is represented by several projects, allowing the reader to compare the design process, style, and content of works by the same designers. This volume is an excellent companion to Mr. Cantor's Contemporary Trends in Landscape Architecture, which examines nine compelling new trends in the field." "Fifty projects are documented, each in meticulous detail, including site plan, technical illustrations, and construction documents. Each landscape architect contributes his or her own style and personality to these projects, and offers personal insights, anecdotes, and perspective. The book is beautifully illustrated with drawings, high-quality black and white photographs, and a sixteen-page color insert." "Innovative Design Solutions in Landscape Architecture documents the ingenious results of solving challenging problems, and emphasizes diversity in its range of project types and examples. For some projects the process that led to a design solution is the most compelling aspect, while other projects draw their strength from the individuality and grace of unusual detailing. Still others are in the middle ground, where idealized design intersects practical construction techniques. The author, a registered landscape architect, employs an interdisciplinary approach that encourages interaction among many professionals, including landscape architects, architects, graphic artists, artists, scientists, economists, urban planners, writers, engineers, and surveyors."--BOOK JACKET.
