"Representing Landscape Architecture" offers a broad investigation
of how the designed landscape is and has been represented: for
design study, for criticism and even for its realization. It has
been said that we can only realize what we can imagine. But in order
to realize we must convey ideas to others as well as to ourselves.
Representation is by no means neutral and the process of
communication, the process by which the imagination takes its first
form, itself necessarily limits the range of our design possibilities.
Computers further remove from cognitive processes and raise new
questions about methods and limits. Written by a team of renowned
practitioners and academics, this book is the best available
reference to date on the many dimensions of landscape representation
