Editorial Reviews

Review

Sweet & Salt is an intensely heavily visual consideration of the history, culture, and engineering of water that engages our senses and our emotions―not just our intellect―with its ravishing (and beautifully printed) photography, cartography, and art. We’re awed and enraptured by water―when we’re not fighting it off.
You will not find any hand-wringing in this volume. Sweet & Salt is a profoundly humanistic consideration of the culture of water, with, along the way, many ideas by designers about how to deal with water’s myriad challenges. Architects, planners, and landscape designers will never think of a riverbank, levee, or seashore the same way again. (James S Russell Architectural Record)

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book that not only has amazing pictures - I love the cow standing in the flooded field on the cover -- it also shows how America and other countries can adapt to climate change and rising sea levels in new ways. Rather than just building massive barriers to keep out the sea, which the Dutch have done for centuries, they have now begun designing the country to let the sea in in a controlled manner. Tracy Metz tells how. It means new forms of dikes, new forms of building construction and new ways of forming. But it's ultimately a longer-term strategy that promises to keep this beautiful country around for many more centuries, even if the sea levels keep rising.
