Product description

Nelson Byrd Woltz's designs transcend mere decoration, they are both technologically innovative and environmentally sound and most importantly; they inspire people to gather together, connecting with nature and each other. Nelson Byrd Woltz: Landscapes is divided into four sections: Garden, Campus, Park and Farm; projects include a Manhattan rooftop garden that provides a haven for visiting bird species; a renewed stream valley and pond at the University of Virginia that has become a favourite spot for campus relaxation as well as a model for stormwater management; a large-scale farming operation that has demonstrated its environmental stewardship by returning large portions of its grazing pastures to wildflower meadows; and an animal-friendly new home for the giant pandas, at the National Zoo in Washington DC. Throughout, lush photography documents the pleasures and significance of a landscape architecture grounded in the affinity with nature and the commitment to preserving it.

Review quote

"The best of [Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects'] important, thoughtful work. The private gardens are serene and masterly, replete with inspiration for the tiniest plots. But this book is more relevant as a showcase for the firm's work in parks and on farms. The text is smart, opinionated and provocative. Perhaps, given the challenges of climate adaptation and water management we'll all face in the years ahead, the firm's breathtaking project in New Zealand might merit an entire book of its own." -- New York Times Book Review
