Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the great strengths of the book is that while each contributor argues clearly, each has a different prod at the matter, so that by the time one has finished the last of the fourteen essays, one has a strong feeling not only of shape but also of consistency in the landscape urbanism "movement." From the plethora of ideas one can extract three main currents of thought in the new discipline, all of which liberate themselves from the trap of urban form as defined by traditional urban designers. -- Harvard Design, Spring 2007

"a fine collection of contemporary thought on the subject" -- Journal of Architectural Education

"New Yorks High Line is hard to categorize - it will be a landscaped park but it is also a highly programmed architectural space, while its origins as infrastructure are still a huge part of its appeal. The emerging field of landscape urbanism is one way to define such a project and the growing numbers of likeminded proposals around the country." --The Architects Newspaper

"Required reading." --Architecture Magazine

I'm not sure why, but many architects and seemingly landscape urbanists feel the need to write about relatively straight forward concepts in these totally unapproachable and molasses like vocabularies (meaning the flow of the read can be smooth, but too often gets bogged up in sticky confounding terminology). Its unnecessary, the heart of the text is fantastic if you can push through the jargon. These concepts will continue to be unapproachable until one of these folks decides to write a book that people can read.

I regret purchasing this book. The essays in the first half of the book were bogged down with academic jargon. After reading each sentence, I would have to go back and break down each word to get some understanding of what the author was stating. Reading the Aeneid in the original Latin was easier to understand. The later essays were clearer, but they did not give a good overview of Landscape Urbanism. If the authors wish to promote Landscape Urbanism to a broader segment of the population, they need to learn how to present their ideas in a clear and concise manner.

No damages or anything.
