April 2, 2008 1856694984 978-1856694988
Detailing makes a landscape unique, and a landscape architect outstanding. Featuring many of the world's most highly acclaimed landscape architects, the book presents 40 of the most recently completed and influential landscape designs.

Each project is presented with color photographs, site plans, and sections as well as numerous constructiondetails. There is also a brief descriptive text, detailed captions, and in-depth information for each project. The projects are presented in clear and concise layouts over four pages. All the drawings are specially commissioned, styled in a consistent manner, and presented at standard architectural scales for easy comparison. Intended for architects, engineers, and landscape architects, the book will also be invaluable for architecture, garden, and landscape design students, for whom it will be a resource not only for understanding the work of the best contemporary landscape architects, but also as a tool fortheir own design work.

4.0 out of 5 stars best book December 10, 2009
By Dmitry
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book very good
It is a lot of helpful information for architects and designers.

On the book it is applied cdrom with all drawings
There is only one minus, on drawings there are no signatures, such as in the book.

In the rest - all is good.

Some examples inside of landscape architecture but technically complicated at least for me. I got it cause I m interested in the subject but found it a bit complicated inside.
