Source Books in Landscape Architecture 7
Source Books in Landscape Architecture provide concise investigation into contemporary designed landscapes by looking behind the curtain and beyond the script to trace intentionality and results. One goal is to offer unvarnished stories or place-making. A second goal is to catch emerging and established designers as facets of their process mature from tentative trial into definitive technique. Each Source Book presents one project or group of related works that are significant to the practice and study of landscape architecture today. Each monograph is a synthesis of a single Glimcher Distinguished Visiting Professorship. Structured as a series of discussion-based seminars to promote critical inquiry into contemporary designed landscapes, the Glimcher Professorships give students direct, sustained access to leading voices in practice. Students who participate in the seminars play an instrumental role in contributing to discussions, transcribing recorded material, and editing content for the Source Books.
