Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Water is a special design element in open space planning and one that lends a decidedly distinguished touch. But it is not enough merely to insert water basins and fountains at the appropriate spots in architectural drawings. As early as the design stage the planner must begin to think about where the water is going to come from, where it is going to drain, and how it is going to be cleaned.

Topics:

Typology (moving water, standing water, natural water ??? pond, lake, ocean ??? planned water ??? basin, fountain, channel, etc.)

Design parameters (site, function, impact)

Basic information on design conception, size, perceptibility, and accessibility

Overview of technical and constructional framework conditions (source, enclosure, planting, water quality, etc.)

Tips on planning

Economic aspects
