Publisher Comments:

From Concept to Form in Landscape Design Grant W. Reid, ASLA One of the most difficult tasks for a designer is to translate concepts into specific and detailed organizations of space. From Concept to Form in Landscape Design provides vital, functional techniques that make the transformation easier and more effective. This perceptive resource examines both traditional and non-traditional methods of landscape design, providing the conceptual and philosophical foundations for ideas and their graphic expression. Reid utilizes both geometric and naturalistic approaches as form determinants. From Concept to Form in Landscape Design includes
  • detailed photographs to assist in visualizing various techniques
  • precise case studies showing sequential processes of form evolution
  • inspiring images from nature for naturalistic form development
  • atypical design examples as impetuses for innovation
From Concept to Form in Landscape Design is presented in a highly visual manner, rendering the process of landscape transformation more accessible. Designers will find these images to be a viable toolbox of techniques with immediate and precise applications. Reid’s approach is replete with compelling, valuable, and accessible insights for both indoor and outdoor spaces, making this book ideal for landscape architects, architects, landscape designers, and students.

Synopsis:

Use this toolbox of techniques to bridge the distance between concept and form. New approaches, featuring the use of naturalism as a form determinant, ease the transition from general concepts to specific physical shapes and detailed organization of spaces.
