Transformative Ground : A Field Guide to the Post-Industrial Landscape Paperback / softback


Aimed at students and instructors, alongside practitioners and researchers, in landscape architecture and its allied disciplinary fields, this book provides the reader with a clear framework of theoretical and practical considerations for interpreting and designing post-industrial landscapes.

One of the biggest contemporary challenges currently faced in the profession is how to effectively understand and work with the transformational possibilities of post-industrial landscapes, while negotiating significant spatial challenges, such as degradation and fragmentation.

Transformative Ground: A Field Guide to the Post-Industrial Landscape presents a range of theoretical perspectives and practical approaches, offering a broad scope of contemporary design strategies that deal with post-industrial landscapes.

Through a series of thematic chapters, allied with precedents from leading design offices, this book identifies how the context of post-industrial landscapes has compelled shifts in fundamental ideas that underpin landscape design.

As a richly illustrated account of this transformative ground, this book provides a must-have guide to help you reimagine the post-industrial landscape.
