Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nelson Byrd Woltz's award-winning landscape architecture is widely celebrated for combining sheer beauty with ecologically regenerative design. The firm's innovative and highly collaborative design methods bring depleted ecosystems back to life—restoring meadows, streams, woodlands, and ponds in urban and rural settings and cultivating connections between sites and their complex regional environments.

Nelson Byrd Woltz: Garden, Park, Community, Farm presents a selection of twelve built projects representing the firm's contemporary vision for sustainable design. These examples demonstrate the remarkable breadth of their practice and inspire a new understanding of how landscape architecture can shape our world through urbanism, agriculture, and conservation sciences.

The projects range from an urban townhouse garden to an animal-friendly habitat for the National Zoo's giant pandas to a large-scale sheep-and-cattle station along the coast of New Zealand. Exceptional photography, hand-drawn plans, and lists of plants and materials document each project, and an appendix of details from numerous additional designs provides an extensive visual reference guide. Nelson Byrd Woltz's transformative landscapes are both an open invitation to learn about nature and a much-needed contribution to the health of our cities, farms, and wildlands.
