On the heels of our groundbreaking books in landscape architecture, James Corner's Recovering Landscape and Charles Waldheim's Landscape Urbanism Reader, comes another essential reader, Thinking the Contemporary Landscape. Examining our shifting perceptions of nature and place in the context of environmental challenges and how these affect urbanism and architecture, the seventeen essayists in Thinking the Contemporary Landscape argue for an all-encompassing view of landscape that integrates the scientific, intellectual, aesthetic, and mythic into a new multidisciplinary understanding of the contemporary landscape. A must-read for anyone concerned about the changing nature of our landscape in a time of climate crisis.


Christophe Girot is chair of landscape architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zuurich.

Dora Imhof is a postdoctoral scholar at the Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich.
