Product description

With populations decentralizing and cities sprawling ever-outward, twenty-first century urban planners are challenged by the need to organize not just people but space itself. Hence a new architectural discipline has emerged: landscape urbanism. In "The Landscape Urbanism Reader", Charles Waldheim - long at the forefront of this new movement - has assembled the definitive collection of essays by many of the field's top practitioners. Fourteen essays written by leading figures across a range of disciplines and from around the world - including James Corner, Linda Pollak, Alan Berger, Pierre Belanger, Julia Czerniak, and more - capture the origins, the contemporary milieu, and the aspirations of this relatively new field. "The Landscape Urbanism Reader" is an inspiring signal to the future of city making as well as an indispensable reference for students, teachers, architects, and urban planners.
