              This is a set that brings together scholarly work on historical, conceptual, and technical aspects of the urban landscape. The role of landscape, as recreational, public, social, ecological, infrastructural and experiential component of the urban environment has been increasingly... recognized during the past decade. The traditional conception of the urban as something that is made of streets and building facades has been replaced by a more complex notion that is inclusive of landscape as a generative and foundational component of the city itself. As cities have continued to expand into metropolitan areas, landscapes have played a key role in the organization of urban territories. This set reflects the role that landscapes have played in the ongoing evolution of cities, from industrial to service based economies. Making readily available in one place materials which are difficult for scholars, researchers, and students across the globe to locate and use, this treasure trove of information includes global scholarship, supplemented with a comprehensive introduction by the editor which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context.

              First book to present the work of Surfacedesign, an innovative San Francisco landscape architecture and urban design firm with major public and private projects throughout the Bay Area and in Hawaii, Mexico, and New Zealand. This monograph explores the design philosophy of the th...ree partners of Surfacedesign, who are committed to solutions that emerge from the site itself and challenge conventional approaches to landscape. The work is informed by the vast openness and frontier spirit of the West, expressed in rugged materials and sustainable planting. Surfacedesign focuses on cultivating a sense of connection to the built and natural world, pushing people to engage with the landscape in new ways. The design approach emphasizes and celebrates the unique context and imaginative potential of each project. The studio's process is rooted in asking novel questions and listening to a site and its users, a process that has led to engaging and inspiring landscapes that are rugged, contemporary, and crafted.
