Format: Hardcover
Large and wonderful book full of iconic examples of urban design and landscape architecture throughout Europe and the United States. Effective photography, renderings, and diagrams convey the character and functionality of the projects very well. Brief but concise descriptions of each of the projects supplement the wonderful imagery. Great as a reference or coffee table book for the student or professional. I work in a private design firm and we have referenced this volume for inspiration many times.
