The issue of landscape is of increasing concern to us as the twenty-first century begins, not only as an area of design and study but also as it is affected by building development and the maintenance of eco-systems. This important and highly topical book extends the existing debate to examine recent projects and their part in our growing concern about the maintenance and enhance-ment of our natural spaces.Modern Landscape features over thirty international projects, including schemes by both architects and landscape architects, often working in collaboration. Following an introductory essay, the book is arranged into four sections of extensively illustrated case studies, each of which deals with a different aspect of landscape design - Parkland, Architecture as Landscape, Garden Landscapes and Urban Interventions - relating it directly to historical and contemporary precedents.
