Description: With populations decentralizing and cities sprawling ever-outward, twenty-ﬁrst-century urban planners are challenged by the need to organize not just people but space itself. Hence a new architectural discourse has emerged: landscape urbanism. In The Landscape Urbanism Reader Charles Waldheim who is at the forefront of this new movement has assembled the deﬁnitive collection of essays by many of the ﬁeld's top practitioners. Fourteen essays written by leading ﬁgures across a range of disciplines and from around the world including James Corner, Linda Pollak, Alan Berger, Pierre B langer, Julia Czerniak, and more capture the origins, the contemporary milieu, and the aspirations of this relatively new ﬁeld. The Landscape Urbanism Reader is an inspiring signal to the future of city making as well as an indispensable reference for students, teachers, architects, and urban planners.
