✏Visual Communication for Landscape Architecture Book Summary : Visual Communication for Landscape Architecture demonstrates not only how and where a range of visual communication skills are needed to inform a design process, but also why they are essential in order to make presentations both informative and memorable. It illustrates how representational techniques can be sensitively applied in different contexts appropriate to a diverse range of design challenges, and encourages experimentation with contemporary techniques, both 2D and 3D. Developing a professional but creative design portfolio is explored in relation to creating e-portfolios and websites. A total of 12 contemporary case studies enable readers to contextualize the methods and techniques explored in each chapter through exploring real-life examples of winning projects by successful landscape architecture practices, making this title an inspirational resource for both budding – and practising – landscape architects.

The editors bring together leading contributors who are experts in new and pioneering approaches and technologies within the fields of academic and professional landscape architecture. The chapters explore digital technology, design processes and theoretical queries that shape the contemporary practice of landscape architecture. Topics covered include: Digital design Fabrication and prototyping Emerging technology Visualization of data System theory Concluding the book are case studies looking at the work of two landscape firms (PEG and MYKD) and two academic departments (Illinois Institute of Technology and the Rhode Island School of Design), which together show the novel and exciting directions that landscape is already going in.

✏Landscape architecture manifestos Constructivist Apocalyptic and Optimistic Book Summary : Landscape architects should be optimistic for the 21st century. With post-Modern and post-Postmodern design methods, we can attain a leading role in the environmental, design and planning professions. This short eBook began with an article for Landscape Architecture Magazine LAM. Bafflingly, it was rejected for being 'rather dated'. The editors obviously know more than we do about their readers' interests. So we regret the US landscape profession's lack of interest in design theory. Understood understood as 'a set of principles for undertaking a task', we believe that design theory lies, or should lie, at the heart of the landscape architecture profession. The Wikipedia article on post-Postmodernism (in 2015) notes that: In 1995, the landscape architect and urban planner Tom Turner issued a book-length call for a post-postmodern turn in urban planning. Turner criticizes the postmodern credo of “anything goes” and suggests that “the built environment professions are witnessing the gradual dawn of a post-Postmodernism that seeks to temper reason with faith.” The book was City as landscape and the design approach has developed since then and is now illustrated with examples from the authors of this eBook.
