About this title


Abstraction and hedge, interaction and landmark, labyrinth and synthesis, pond and utopia the reader is confronted with a tremendous variety of terms, from the description of the various elements of a garden all the way to theoretical, historical, symbolic, and iconographic aspects of landscape design. Meto J. Vroom, a former professor of landscape architecture at Universität Wageningen, defines and analyzes more than 250 terms, concepts, and objects. While the definitions convey the universally recognized meaning of the headwords, each essay briefly outlines a subject with a critical commentary and numerous commendations for further reading. Thus the lexicon serves to clarify important terms and expressions that designers use on a daily basis. More than that, however, it also constitutes a general introduction to the major themes of landscape design. Abstraktion und Hecke, Interaktion und Landmark, Labyrinth und Synthese, Teich und Utopie der Leser wird mit einem weiten Feld von Begriffen konfrontiert, von der Beschreibung verschiedener Komponenten eines Gartens bis hin zu theoretischen, historischen, symbolischen und ikonografischen Aspekten der Landschaftsgestaltung. Meto J. Vroom, ehemaliger Professor für Landschaftsarchitektur an der Universität Wageningen, definiert und analysiert mehr als 250 Begriffe, Konzepte und Objekte. Während die Definitionen die allgemein gültige Bedeutung der Stichworte wiedergeben, enthält jeder Essay den kurzen Abriss eines Themas, einen kritischen Kommentar sowie zahlreiche Literaturverweise. Das Lexikon dient so der Klärung von wichtigen Begriffen und Ausdrücken, die Gestalter tagtäglich verwenden. Es stellt darüber hinaus aber auch eine generelle Einführung in die Themen der Landschaftsgestaltung dar.
