URBAN LANDSCAPE DESIGN
FLANNERY,JOHN HERAUSGEGEBEN,JOHN VON SMITH,KAREN
This overview of innovative landscaping solutions for urban spaces shows a range of approaches to one key conundrum: making urban spaces livable. Whether echoing a primeval forest, suggesting the slope of a mossy glen or evoking the wondrous shapes of a child's toy box, these environments bring a new dynamic to city living. With examples from around the world, we see how a commute transforms and becomes more enjoyable, a formerly bleak corner more inviting, and a barren vacuum a focus for community gatherings and socializing.
