Summary
Landscape architecture projects have always begun with the site. As the practice of landscape architecture has changed so have the types of sites that designers are taking on. Projects now have to help connect neighborhoods, manage stormwater, cool urban centers, and provide wildlife habitats. In Landscapes of Change, Roxi Thoren, associate professor at the University of Oregon, examines how these new types of sites drive the design process and result in innovative and groundbreaking work that serve the needs of a wide variety of users. With twenty-six case studies from around the world, the book explores how the site can serve as the design generator, describing each project through the physical, material, ecological, and cultural processes that have shaped the site historically and continue to shape the current projects. Case studies include Queens Plaza in Queens, New York; the Buffalo Bayou Promenade in Houston, Texas; and the Jaffa Landfill Park in Tel Aviv, Israel
