About this item

This book outlines the design and planning of urban river spaces and presents examples of good practice that address ecology, flood protection, or amenity, as well as river dynamics and innovative design tools. Landscape architects and hydraulic engineers from Europe explain the essentials of high-quality design of urban river spaces and the process typologies that shape rivers, their appearance, and their transformations, then detail design strategies, tools, and measures for embankment walls and promenades, dikes and flood walls, flood areas, riverbeds and currents, and dynamic river landscapes, ending with the projects from which the design tools were drawn. This edition adds 12 case studies mostly from North America and Asia and several design tools. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
