Editorial Reviews


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)
