Form and Fabric in Landscape Architecture provides an original, visual approach to the study of landscape architecture by creating a spatial morphology based on use and experience of landscapes. It explores aesthetic, spatial and experiential concepts by providing a structure through which landscapes can be understood and conceived in design. 'Fabric' is the integrated structure of whole landscapes, while 'form' refers to the components that make up this fabric. Together form and fabric create a morphology of landscape useful for the development of visual-spatial design thinking and awareness. This book is intended as both an introduction to the discipline for students of landscape architecture, architecture and planning, and a source of continuing interest for more experienced environmental designers.
Catherine Dee is Senior Lecturer in Landscape Design, Department of Landscape, University of Sheffield, UK.

Editorial Reviews

"This book is one of those that should not be judged at face value. To my knowledge there are no other books quite like it -- quite a daunting fact at the start. But stick with it, because the formulas used to structure the book is a real winner...In summary, when reading this book -- and read it you definitely should -- make sure you do not have an appointment to keep. This book will make you feel obliged to read on, just to check if there is an ingredient of landscape design to which you have so far been oblivious."-Martin Hird, "Landscape Design 308, , March 2002 "Dee (Univ. of Sheffield, UK) has produced a fascinating book with excellent and invaluable line drawings as an introduction for landscape students as well as those in architecture and planning. The clarity of the writing and the selection of the drawings, even if based on photographs, make for a lucid picture. The work is an important and provocative contribution." "T.J. McCormick, emeritus, Wheaton College (MA) Choice May 2002 Vol. 39 No. 09."
