It has been argued that the history of landscape and of gardens has been marginalized from the mainstream of art history and visual studies because of a lack of engagement with the theories, methods and concepts of these disciplines. This book explores possible ways out of this impasse in such a way that landscape studies would become pivotal through its theoretical advances, since landscape studies would challenge the underlying assumptions of traditional phenomenological theory. Thus the history and theory of twentieth-century landscape might not only once again share concepts and methods with contemporary art and design history, but might in turn influence them.
A complementary sequel to Relating Architecture to Landscape, this volume of essays explores further areas of interest and discussion in the landscape/architecture debate and offers contributions from a team of well-known researchers, teachers and writers. The choice of topics is wide-ranging and features case studies of modern and contemporary schemes from the USA, Far East and Australasia.

Review:

"The book's illustrations could make a thesis in themselves...all of these essays are valid as critical exercises."
-Robin Wilson, "The Architect's Journal, September 13,2001
"Mentioned in a publication of "Landscape Design 301."
June 2001
..."offered as an illustration of why and how landscape studies can engender important theoretical and methodological advances, they are all deeply embedded within either conventional architecture historical or current postmodern and postcultural approaches."
-Edward Robbins, "Architectural Review, 2002
