Editorial Reviews

Review

...a very good small book about large parks...The essays all make substantial contributions in the areas of sustainability, public/private dominance, place, legibility and resilience, furthering the broader discussion of how to comprehend the designer's role in these vast tracts of land. -- Azure, October 2007

"In Large Parks, Julia Czerniak and George Hargreaves present eight essays by leading scholars and practitioners that engage large urban parks in depth as complex cultural spaces where key issues of landscape discourse, ecological challenges, social history, uban relations, and place-making are writ large. From historic parks such as New Yorks Central Park and Pariss Bois de Boulogne to contemporary projects such as Torontos Downsview Park and Staten Islands Fresh Kills" --Harvard Design Magazine

"(Large Parks) throws a wide net, including a range of green lungs at least 500 acres, whether on landfills, along formerly derelict waterfronts, or at decomissioned air fields. " --Architect

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book should really be bigger in order to better represent the great images and detailed graphics within. The irony is unfortunate. Otherwise a great book though.
