Description

"This brilliant study creates a methodology that enables architects, urban designers, landscape architects and ecologists to share a language that defines urban patches in terms of their dominant ground cover, and then degrees of hybridity in a matrix of cover mixtures."--Grahame Shane, Columbia University
"Patch Atlas provides an invaluable bridge between the science of urban ecology and the art of urban design. The authors offer an important template for understanding our interactions with our surroundings, crucial for designing better futures in this age of cities."--Frederick Steiner, Dean and Paley Professor, Stuart Weitzman School of Design, University of Pennsylvania
"If we are to transition to sustainability in an urban century, we need urban designers to understand ecology, and we need ecologists to understand urban design. This much-needed and timely volume brings together the practice and aesthetic of design with urban ecology to uncover hidden patterns in urban systems. It will help designers and ecologists read the urban landscape with a fresh perspective."--Karen Seto, Yale University, and co-author of City Unseen: New Visions of an Urban Planet
