Innovative Materials and Technologies for Landscape Architecture
Birkhauser
Mai 2007
Anglais


Living systems propose une approche à la fois théorique et technique du paysage à travers des notions telles que la croissance, le flux, le métabolisme, le climat et les phénomènes atmosphériques. 36 projets internationaux accompagnés de 23 matériaux innovants sont présentés à l'aide de dessins, de photographies et d'une analyse.

Living Systems surveys a wide array of innovative approaches to material technologies within the field of landscape architecture. The selected projects and materials exhibit a contemporary demand for technological landscapes and the collaboration between designers, engineers, scientists and ecologists. The book redefines the conventional boundaries of landscape materiality by focusing on growth, flow, metabolism, climate, and atmospheric phenomena.

Projects and materials are cross-referenced according to performance criteria, processes, and properties. Each of the 36 international projects and 23 material technologies is presented with drawing details, construction photographs and an analysis of the various complex systems featured, such as vertical growth structures, flood prevention, stormwater infiltration, erosion control, and the integration of digital media.

Projects featured include works by West8, GROSS.MAX, Weiss-Manfredi Architects, Field Operations, Kathryn Gustafson, and Vogt Landschaftarchitekten.
