On the heels of our groundbreaking books in landscape architecture, James Corner''s Recovering Landscape and Charles Waldheim''s Landscape Urbanism Reader, comes another essential reader, . Examining our shifting perceptions of nature and place in the context of environmental challenges and how these affect urbanism and architecture, the seventeen essayists in argue for an all-encompassing view of landscape that integrates the scientific, intellectual, aesthetic, and mythic into a new multidisciplinary understanding of the contemporary landscape. A must-read for anyone concerned about the changing nature of our landscape in a time of climate crisis.
Christophe Girot and Dora Imhof are Professor and Chair of Landscape Architecture at the Architecture Department, and Chair for the History of Art and Architecture at the Institute for the History and Theory of the Architecture, of the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zurich.
