What People are Saying About This

Design Book Review - Marc Treib

Higuchi's Die Visual and Spatial Structure of Landscapes is an important book. In a sense, it is really two books: in the first section, he attempts to apply Lynch's concept of perceptual analysis not to the city, but to the landscape; in the second section, he advances a typology of historical landscape, and explicates its role in Japanese history and spatial design... a classic work that bears reading and studying by those involved with landscape from a design or from a historical/ interpretive point of view.
