  7. 5 books for Design Studio Modules

    Five books for Design Studio modules hand picked by the Routledge Landscape Editor

  8. Captured Landscape (January 2012)

    This book discusses the continuing relevance of enclosed gardens to contemporary architecture by describing some of the greatest and most influential historical and contemporary examples. The enclosed garden, or hortus conclusus , is a place set apart from the wider terrain where architecture, architectural elements and landscape meet. By its nature it is ambiguous. Is it an outdoor room, or is it captured landscape? Studying the evolution of enclosed gardens and the concepts they generate is a highly effective means for students to learn more about the design requirements for proximal outdoor spaces. A wide range of case studies are analyzed in a text richly illustrated with diagrams, sketches and photographs.
     

  9. To Design Landscape (January 2012)

    To Design Landscape is about aesthetic practice in contemporary landscape design. It offers both highly practical lessons and a cultural philosophy of landscape design at a time of ecological necessity. In it, Catherine Dee combines theory with a striking visual format and image-based ‘lessons’, drawing on her experiences as an inspirational landscape architecture lecturer and her talents as an artist. A must for all landscape architecture students.
     

  10. Representing Landscapes (March 2012)

    The choice of medium for visualizing an idea is something that faces all students of landscape architecture and urban design, and each medium and style option that you select will influence how your idea is seen and understood. Responding to demand from her students, Nadia Amoroso has compiled successful and eye-catching drawings using various drawing styles and techniques to create this book of drawing techniques for landscape architects to follow and - more importantly - to be inspired by. More than twenty respected institutions have help to bring together the very best of visual representation of ideas, the most powerful, expressive and successful images. Professors from these institutions provide critical and descriptive commentaries, explaining the impact of using different media to represent the same landscape.
