Publisher Comments:

Some parks, preserves, and other natural areas serve people well; others are disappointing. Successful design and management requires knowledge of both people and environments.

With People in Mind explores how to design and manage areas of "everyday nature"-parks and open spaces, corporate grounds, vacant lots and backyard gardens, fields and forests-in ways that are beneficial to and appreciated by humans. Rachel Kaplan and Stephen Kaplan, leading researchers in the field of environmental psychology, along with Robert Ryan, a landscape architect and urban planner, provide a conceptual framework for considering the human dimensions of natural areas and offer a fresh perspective on the subject. The authors examine.

  • physical aspects of natural settings that enhance preference and reduce fear
  • ways to facilitate way-finding
  • how to create restorative settings that allow people to recover from the stress of daily demands
  • landscape elements that are particularly important to human needs
  • techniques for obtaining useful public input
