An invaluable handbook of contemporary landscape design concepts and technical information

Landscape architecture dovetails the needs and desires of the user with the conditions of the site. Plants and hardscape materials contribute line, form, color, texture and visual weight, which interact with proportion, order, repetition and unity to create a pleasing landscape.

1000 Details in Landscape Architecture is a reference catalog to the aesthetic and technical features of outstanding landscape designs chosen from around the world. Through photographs and drawings (elevations, cross-sections, axonometrics and sketches), the book examines landscape architecture as an artistic application that evolves as plants grow, environmental conditions change, and people use the space.

The details in this practical reference have been selected for their capacity to inspire and propose innovative ideas. Divided into thematic chapters, the details are numbered from one to one thousand, and described in concise captions.

This handsome volume is packed with illustrations and the most current technical expertise. Professionals, students and anyone with an interest in landscape architecture and design in general will find it fascinating and eminently practical.

About the Author:

Francesc Zamora Mola is an interior designer and architect with degrees from both the Escola Massana in Barcelona and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He is co-author of Star Landscape Architecture: The Stars of Landscape and Land and a frequent contributor to design and architecture publications.

From Booklist:

Readers with either a keen or a hazy grasp of what landscape architecture entails will gain an altogether sharper and more encompassing understanding after absorbing the 1,000 examples from around the world presented in this brightly delineating volume. Architect Zamora Mola provides a crisp introduction, explaining that landscape architecture applies cultural, artistic, technical, and scientific knowledge to the design of an open space, most often in cities. The reigning concern now, alongside accessibility and appeal, is environmental preservation and improvement. From those basic needs spring astonishingly creative approaches to parks, gardens, waterfronts, train stations, airports, cemeteries, museums, campuses, factories, plazas, shopping malls, and green roofs. The small but sharp color photographs, effectively sequenced by theme, are accompanied by succinct and genuinely informative captions. Traditional materials––stone, plantings, and water—are combined with myriad innovations, both futuristically high-tech and down-to-earth playful, such as low walls built of stacked books sprouting mushrooms. Styles vary from minimalist to rococo, but a thousand times over these gracefully designed spaces are welcoming and dynamic, living proof of our ability to dwell in harmony with nature. --Donna Seaman
