Welcome to our new online catalogue for research and reference for our Architecture and Landscape Architecture lists. The catalogue features our new titles coming out this year, as well as our backlist collection of relevant and popular works.
Major Works - In January 2014, Routledge Major Works will publish two new series called - Critical Concepts in Architecture and Critical Concepts in the Built Environment. These ‘mini libraries’ bring together canonical and cutting-edge scholarship to provide users with historical context as well as a thorough, broad overview of current issues and debates. The first collections to publish in these new series will be:
Handbooks - The Routledge Companion to Landscape Studies offers the first comprehensive attempt to explore research directions into the many uses and meanings of ‘landscape’. It contains thirty-nine original contributions from leading scholars within the field, which have been divided into four parts: Experiencing Landscape; Landscape Culture and Heritage; Landscape, Society and Justice; and Design and Planning for Landscape. It serves as an invaluable point of reference for scholars, researchers and graduate students alike, engaging in the field of landscape studies.
The Routledge Companion to Landscape Studies edited by Peter Howard, Ian Thompson, and Emma Waterton
Routledge Revivals – This year has seen an exciting new addition to the Routledge Revival Collection. Community Architecture was first published in 1987, this title was one of the first to explore the emerging popular movement of Community Architecture, championed by Prince Charles, which gained momentum throughout Britain in the 1970s and 1980s. And is still remains one of the key reference works for student architects and planners.
