Is Landscape...? : Essays on the Identity of Landscape
Rather than promoting a singular way of understanding landscape, this book provides a compelling investigation into the multiple positions of landscape architecture.
The framing question ‘is landscape…?’ creates a base from which scholars and professionals in landscape examine various definitions of the subject and delve into the multifaceted influences upon understanding and development of the discipline. Topics addressed range from common subjects - such as history and theory, ecology and planning – to the more challenging philosophical questions of whether landscape is a profession or even a discipline.
This wide ranging book is an ideal introductory text for landscape architecture courses and a springboard for graduate discussions.
