Ecology, Community, and Delight: Sources of Values in Landscape Architecture

Synopsis

Landscape architecture is a key profession for a world facing an uncertain environmental future. Yet it is hindered by a chronic identity crisis: Is it primarily concerned with making beautiful places, helping people or saving the planet from ecological catastrophe? This book examines the three principle value systems which influence landscape architectural practice, the aesthetic, the social and the environmental, and seeks to discover the role that the profession should be playing now and for the future.
