In Large Parks, editors Julia Czerniak and George Hargreaves present eight essays by leading scholars and practitioners that engage large urban parks in depth as complex cultural spaces, where key issues of landscape discourse, ecological challenges, social history, urban relations, and place-making are writ large. From historic parks such as New York??'s Central Park and Paris??'s Bois de Boulogne to contemporary projects such as Toronto??'s Downsview Park and Staten Island's Fresh Kills, to newly unveiled and yet-to-bebuilt projects such as Ken Smith??'s ambitious plans for the Orange County Great Park, Large Parks highlights the complexities and unique considerations that go into designing these massive and culturally significant works.
