5.0 out of 5 stars Interpretations of the ground plane, January 15, 2007
By 
SantiagoJP (Miami, FLORIDA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape (Paperback)
The book is filled with a series of exceptional projects in dealing with the transition between the interior and exterior space and the multiple ways of ground sculpturing. The projects are displayed with photographs, renderings, and drawings which further explain plan and section design. The book is inspirational and a great reference material.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Required Text" for Design Students and Faculty, February 15, 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape (Paperback)
A great book on many levels, its a must for any architect's, urban designer's, and landscape architect's library, whether student, faculty, or practitioner. The projects are well selected from the past decade or so, many of them already canonical. The images are also well chosen, with a mix of plans, details, perspectives, etc. The graphic design (not over designed) makes the book a pleasure. The shortcoming might be that there are only a few pages per project, so some may like more depth. However as an inspirational anthology and reference, its worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars favorite LA book ever, February 12, 2010
By 
Loula (Baton Rouge, LA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Groundswell: Constructing the Contemporary Landscape (Paperback)
this is possibly my favorite book on Landscape Architecture. The text is concise but informative, images are sufficient to grasp projects without reading text and i go back time and again to read through and gain inspiration from the graphics. diversity of project scope, location, size and style. must buy for all landscape architects, especially students wanting to gain a quick understanding of some contemporary work. picked out for me by my sister ( a non designer) so it definitely appeals to the general public and works well as an educational tool regarding what it is that LA's do...
