Condition: New
Hardcover New Award-winning landscape architecture firm Nelson Byrd Woltz is celebrated for projects that, in addition to their sheer beauty, frequently trigger a cascade of ... positive ecological benefits: depleted landscapes brought back to life by reintroducing native plant species; the resurgence of local animals; and the restoration of damaged ecosystems made possible through unconventional, cross-disciplinary collaborations with scientists, sociologists, artists, biologists, and others who share their dedication to the stewardship of the land. Nelson Byrd Woltz: Landscapes presents twelve examples of the firm's innovative brand of sustainable design. Divided into four sections--Garden, Community, Park, and Farm--they range in scope from residential gardens to a large-scale sheep-and-cattle station along the coast of New Zealand. These unforgettable landscapes are both an open invitation to gather together and a much-needed contribution to the health of our cities, farms, and wildlands. Read more Show Less

Overview

Nelson Byrd Woltz's award-winning landscape architecture is widely celebrated for combining sheer beauty with ecologically regenerative design. The firm's innovative and highly collaborative design methods bring depleted ecosystems back to life—restoring meadows, streams, woodlands, and ponds in urban and rural settings and cultivating connections between sites and their complex regional environments.

Nelson Byrd Woltz: Garden, Park, Community, Farm presents a selection of twelve built projects representing the firm's contemporary vision for sustainable design. These examples demonstrate the remarkable breadth of their practice and inspire a new understanding of how landscape architecture can shape our world through urbanism, agriculture, and conservation sciences.

The projects range from an urban townhouse garden to an animal-friendly habitat for the National Zoo's giant pandas to a large-scale sheep-and-cattle station along the coast of New Zealand. Exceptional photography, hand-drawn plans, and lists of plants and materials document each project, and an appendix of details from numerous additional designs provides an extensive visual reference guide. Nelson Byrd Woltz's transformative landscapes are both an open invitation to learn about nature and a much-needed contribution to the health of our cities, farms, and wildlands.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Dominique Browning
The private gardens are serene and masterly, replete with inspiration for the tiniest plots. But this book is more relevant as a showcase for the firm's work in parks and on farms…Unusually for this sort of monograph, the text is smart, opinionated and provocative.
From the Publisher
"A deep, intelligent dive into the world of exterior design, one destined to become a reference for generations of landscape architects. Also a fascinating and illuminating read for those with only general knowledge of the subject - who, after looking through it, will no doubt want to learn more." — 1stdibs

"The best of [Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects'] important, thoughtful work. The private gardens are serene and masterly, replete with inspiration for the tiniest plots. But this book is more relevant as a showcase for the firm's work in parks and on farms. The text is smart, opinionated and provocative. Perhaps, given the challenges of climate adaptation and water management we'll all face in the years ahead, the firm's breathtaking project in New Zealand might merit an entire book of its own." — New York Times Book Review

"Nelson Byrd Woltz does more than just make pretty vistas. Its designs have brought back desiccated properties and revived indigenous plant life. Nelson Byrd Woltz: Garden Park Community Farm (Princeton Architectural Press) takes a close look at 12 projects - three in each of the title's categories - from the last decade and a half." —Elle Decor
