This overview of innovative landscaping solutions for urban spaces shows a range of approaches to one key conundrum: making urban spaces livable. Whether echoing a primeval forest, suggesting the slope of a mossy glen or evoking the wondrous shapes of a child's toy box, these environments bring a new dynamic to city living. With examples from around the world, we see how a commute transforms and becomes more enjoyable, a formerly bleak corner more inviting, and a barren vacuum a focus for community gatherings and socializing. Comprehensively illustrated, this is an indispensable resource for design professionals An ideal gift for lovers of parks and architecture or devotees of the urban experience 250 color and b/w photographs
