Landscapes & Gardens (Paperback) (George Hargreaves & Mary Margaret Jones & Gavin McMillan)
About this item
Using ten landscape architectural projects on three continents, Landscapes and Gardens presents the case for green landscapes and public gardens in the city. The authors discuss, through short essays, their approach to public open space, green landscapes, and human-scaled gardens. Highlighting strategies for the design of public landscapes and gardens, the use of appropriate materials and plant species, and how site and climate influence the final design, Landscapes and Gardens is a lush collection of beautiful images of gardens, big and small, providing inspiration for those who love parks, gardens, and gardening.
Hargreaves Associates has been on the forefront of landscape architectural practice since its founding in 1983, creating a narrative approach to place making that layers history, ecology, and environmental phenomena. This book, featuring the built work of Hargreaves Associates explores how they create meaning through dynamic, interactive, and exultant landscape. Whether reductive or rich, highly programmed or passive, culturally interpretive or teeming with the phenomena of nature?s own systems, the built landscapes of Hargreaves Associates in this volume seek the power of connection to our day-to-day lives.
