Foundations of Landscape Architecture: Integrating Form and Space Using the Language of Site Design is a visually engaging introduction to landscape architectural design that presents the foundational concepts needed to effectively integrate space and form in landscape design. With more than 500 hand-rendered and digital drawings, as well as photographs, the book illustrates the importance of spatial language. It introduces concepts, typologies, and rudimentary principles of form and space. Including designs for projects such as parks, campuses, and memorials, this text provides the core concepts necessary for designers to shape functional landscapes. Additionally, chapters discuss organizational and spatial design structures based on orthogonal forms, angular forms and circular forms.
