A valuable landscape design history book
As the founding president of the famous Central Park Conservancy and of Cityscape Institute, Elizabeth Barlow Rogers summarized her experience, research and observations and her extensive training in art history and city planning in ¿Landscape Design: A Cultural and Architectural History.¿ ¿Landscape Design: A Cultural and Architectural History¿ covers architecture, landscape architecture, conservation, city planning, earthworks, and other landscape designs in many different cultures from dawn of humanity to present, such as Stonehenge, ancient Egyptian royal cemeteries, gardens of Renaissance, Baroque Europe, English naturalistic Landscape, the Forbidden City of Beijing, Versailles, and New York's Central Park, etc. For many years, ¿The Landscape of Man: Shaping the Environment from Prehistory to the Present Day¿ used to be the only comprehensive book covering landscape architecture at a grand scale, with striking bird¿s eye view photos showing how brilliant human beings can be. ¿Landscape Design: A Cultural and Architectural History¿ can supplement ¿The Landscape of Man: Shaping the Environment from Prehistory to the Present Day¿ since it provides more in-depth discussions. ¿Landscape Design: A Cultural and Architectural History¿ has 544 pages and 633 line drawings and dazzling interior photographs 'many of them are color'. It is a valuable landscape design history book for landscape architecture students, seasoned design professionals and ordinary garden lovers!Was this review helpful?
