The study of the site is a crucially important step in landscape architectural design. How can the preexisting layers, traces, and elements be broken down and made fruitful for the recomposition of the landscape? This book presents an extensive typology of possible approaches to working with the site. With more than three hundred landscape designs from every time and place, it systematically presents the methods that underpin the processes involved in composing landscapes. Topics range from architectural details to gardens all the way to cityscapes and cultivated areas, including New York's Central Park, sixteenth and seventeenth century Italian gardens, and the Seine landscapes in Paris. Extensive indices round out this book as a sound and solid manual of design.Extensive indices round out this book as a sound and solid manual of design.
