The Art of Landscape Detail: Fundamentals, Practices and Case Studies
Author: Niall Kirkwood New York: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 1998
This book provides a landscape construction design text for design educators and students that introduces the subject of landscape detail and its approaches, themes, and processes as they inform the physical production of the built environment. The objectives are to broaden the vocabulary and detail language of progressive landscape design, to unite the act of landscape detail processes with site design, and to impact and rectify the poverty of generic site detail found within current design literature and instruction. The Art of Landscape Detail will include extensive illustrated detail case studies of projects carried out by contemporary practitioners including interviews, drawings, and site photographs.
