Summary
  • "Following the end of World War II, the primary tasks for many countries were land clearance, reformation, and reconstruction, as well as the reestablishment of functioning infrastructures. These social and environmental concerns, with parallel developments in the fine arts, fostered many of the twentieth century's most consequential developments in landscape design and architecture, and set the course that we still follow to a large degree today." "The Architecture of Landscape, 1940-1960 provides a groundbreaking collection of worldwide perspectives on this vital and underappreciated era of landscape architecture. It is also the first critical assessment of this period, with information and insight previously unavailable to English-language readers."
  • "With over two hundred illustrations in ten essays by noted historians and theorists from around the world, The Architecture of Landscape, 1940-1960 offers a comprehensive analysis of landscape architecture during an epoch when geographic limits became less important than a sense of world development and an international community of values and design ideas. In this sense, it is a landmark publication."--BOOK JACKET
