Add your own review!

Overview

At a time when everything is being forced to rapidly adapt to climate change, landscape comes into focus as a subject and medium of more importance than ever. Nowhere is this better known than at the Weitzman School of Design at The University of Pennsylvania, where the landscape architecture department has been leading the field for over 70 years. Edited by Richard Weller and Tatum Hands, The Landscape Project is a collection of 17 essays by the landscape faculty at Weitzman. Each author takes on a single topic — animals, plants, water, energy, politics, urbanism, aesthetics, and more.  If there is just one book you need to get up to speed on the state of art in landscape architecture, then this beautifully crafted little black book is it!

Reviews

The essay writing of The Landscape Project makes the book easily readable and accessible. It is not only for landscape architecture professionals and students. Still, it provides, in some ways, a background for those outside the profession to understand the various issues we face as the human race and the role the landscape profession can play. The book is a beautifully bound book with a high-quality cover and lettering that is befitting the quality of the writing and topics within its covers. --World Landscape Architect
