With populations decentralizing and cities sprawling ever outward, twenty-first-century urban planners are challenged by the need to organize not just people but space itself. Hence a new architectural discourse has emerged: landscape urbanism.
In The Landscape Urbanism Reader Charles Waldheim-- who is at the forefront of this new movement--has assembled the definitive collection of essays by many of the field's top practitioners. Fourteen essays written by leading figures across a range of disciplines and from around the world-- including James Corner, Linda Pollak, Alan Berger, Pierre Bolanger, Julia Czerniak, and more--capture the origins, the contemporary milieu, and the aspirations of this relatively new field. The Landscape Urbanism Reader is an inspiring signal to the future of city making as well as an indispensable reference for students, teachers, architects, and urban planners.
Charles Waldheim is the editor of numerous books on landscape urbanism and the associate dean and director of the Landscape Architecture Program at the University of Toronto.
