Overview

Following the end of World War II, the primary tasks for many countries were land clearance, reformation, and reconstruction, as well as the reestablishment of functioning infrastructures. These social and environmental concerns, with parallel developments in the fine arts, fostered many of the century's most consequential developments in landscape design and architecture, and set the course that we still follow to a large degree today.

With over two hundred illustrations in ten essays by noted historians and theorists from around the world, The Architecture of Landscape, 1940-1960 offers a comprehensive analysis of landscape architecture during an epoch when geographic limits became less important than a sense of world development and an international community of values and design ideas. In this sense, it is a landmark publication.

Contributors include Thorbjörn Andersson, Malene Hauxner, Alan Powers, Dorothée Imbert, Gert Gröning, Catherine Howett, Dianne Harris, Rossana Vaccarino, and Philip Goad.
