Landscape architecture is comprised of a wide and multifaceted range of very diverse outdoor space designs - stern or playful, shrill or romantic, straightforward or low key. As their main "building materials" are trees and shrubs, flowers and grass, landscape architecture projects are in a constant state of flux. As opposed to architectural buildings, projects in this sector are therefore never quite 'finished' or completely developed. This compendium is a reference book and source of inspiration in one, presenting around 350 current projects from around the world. They range from expansive natural and cultivated landscapes, via picturesque front yards and courtyards, spectacular greened facades and roofs, up to innovative outdoor designs that nearly or completely make do without any vegetation. They all share the fact that they constitute and provide ecologically and socially intact living spaces for human beings.
