Die Verwendung neuartiger Materialien stellt einen wichtigen Trend in der Landschaftsarchitektur dar. Dazu gehoren z.B. biologisch abbaubare Geotextilien, superabsorbierende Polymere und Pflanzen, die sensitiv auf sich wandelnde Bodenbedingungen reagieren. Die verfugbaren Materialien und Technologien werden in ihrer teils experimentellen, teils ausgereiften Anwendung dargestellt.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Living Systems surveys a wide array of innovative approaches to material technologies within the field of landscape architecture. The selected projects and materials exhibit a contemporary demand for technological landscapes and the collaboration between designers, engineers, scientists and ecologists. The book redefines the conventional boundaries of landscape materiality by focusing on growth, flow, metabolism, climate, and atmospheric phenomena. Projects and materials are cross-referenced according to performance criteria, processes, and properties. Each of the 36 international projects and 23 material technologies is presented with drawing details, construction photographs and an analysis of the various complex systems featured, such as vertical growth structures, flood prevention, stormwater infiltration, erosion control, and the integration of digital media. Projects featured include works by West8, GROSS.MAX, Weiss-Manfredi Architects, Field Operations, Kathryn Gustafson, and Vogt Landschaftarchitekten.
