Modern Landscape Architecture
These twenty-two essays provide a rich forum for assessing the tenets, accomplishments, and limits of modernism in landscape architecture, and for formulating ideas about possible directions for the future of the discipline. Modern Landscape Architecture brings together seminal articles from the 1930s and 1940s by Garrett Eckbo, Dan Kiley, James Rose, Fletcher Steele, and Christopher Tunnard, while contemporary writers and designers such as Pierce Lewis, Catherine Howett, John Dixon Hunt, Peter Walker, and Martha Schwartz examine the historical and cultural framework within which modern landscape designers have worked.
