Defiant gardens : making gardens in wartime by Kenneth I Helphand( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proving that gardens are far more than peaceful respites from the outside world, Defiant Gardens is a thought-provoking analysis of why people build and work in gardens. Helphand portrays the dramatic range of circumstances in which people have created gardens - as a means of nourishment, as a pursuit of beauty, and as an expression of hope. Informative and inspirational, this history of gardens during wartime documents how gardens have humanized landscapes and experience, even under the most dire conditions."--Jacket
Dreaming gardens : landscape architecture and the making of modern Israel by Kenneth I Helphand( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dreaming Gardens is a work that provides, for the first time, a framework for understanding the contributions of landscape architecture in the creation of Israel. The development of the landscape architecture profession in Israel paralleled the development of the state, as immigrants brought skills and ideas from the Diaspora, creating a unique opportunity for designers to help shape their national identity. Helphand's clear writing, complemented by copious color illustrations, charts the shifting attitudes of this singular culture toward its land, landscapes, communities, and nation."--Cover

Technology and the garden by Dumbarton Oaks Colloquium on the History of Landscape Architecture( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technology is the practice and activity of making, as well as the tools that enable that making. It is also the realm of ideas behind those endeavors, the expanse of technical knowledge and expertise. At once material, intellectual, active, and social, technology is the purposeful organization of human effort to alter and shape the environment. Gardens, like other designed landscapes, are products of a range of technologies; their layout, construction, and maintenance would be unthinkable without technology. What are the technologies of garden making, what are the concepts and ideas behind garden technologies, and what is the meaning and experience of those endeavors? Technology and the Garden examines the shaping and visualization of the landscape; the development of horticultural technologies; the construction of landscape through hydraulics, labor, and infrastructure; and the effect of emerging technologies on the experience of landscape. These essays demonstrate how the technics of the garden can be hidden or revealed, disguised beneath the earth or celebrated on the surface. How designers have approached technology, in all historical periods and in a diversity of places and cultures, is a central question in landscape studies
Lawrence Halprin by Kenneth I Helphand( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During a career spanning six decades, Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009) became one of the most prolific and outspoken landscape architects of his generation. He took on challenging new project types, developing a multidisciplinary practice while experimenting with adaptive reuse and ecological designs for new shopping malls, freeways, and urban parks. In his lifelong effort to improve the American landscape, Halprin celebrated the creative process as a form of social activism.A native New Yorker, Halprin earned degrees from Cornell and the University of Wisconsin before completing his design degree at Harvard. In 1945 he joined Thomas Church's firm, where he collaborated on the iconic Donnell Garden. He opened his own San Francisco office in 1949, where he initially focused on residential commissions in the Bay Area, completing close to three hundred in ten years' time. By the 1960s the firm had gained recognition for significant urban renewal projects such as Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco (1962-68), Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis (1962-67), and Freeway Park in Seattle (1970-74). Halprin used his conception of a Sierra stream as the catalyst for the Portland Open Space Sequence, a series of parks featuring great fountains that linked housing and civic space in the inner city.A charismatic speaker and passionate artist, Halprin designed landscapes that reflected the democratic and participatory ethic characteristic of his era. He communicated his ideas as well in lectures, books, exhibits, and performances. Along with his contemporary Ian McHarg, Halprin was his generation's great proselytizer for landscape architecture as environmental design. Throughout his long career, he strived to develop poetic and symbolic landscapes that, in his words, could articulate a culture's most spiritual values

John Yeon landscape : design, conservation, activism( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Yeon (1910-1994) devoted his life to designing and preserving the spectacular terrain of the Pacific Northwest. John Yeon Landscape explores his roles as planner, landscape architect, and conservation activist. The son of a lumber baron who raised the money for and oversaw the construction of one of America's first scenic highways, the Columbia River Gorge Highway, Yeon tackled conservation causes with the eye of a landscape designer. He single-handedly protected two of the most prominent features of the Oregon Coast: Neahkahnie Mountain and Chapman Point. Stemming from an intimate understanding of both landscape and the timber business, Yeon's writing and advocacy played an important role in the establishment of Olympic National Park. And in the Columbia River Gorge, he led a national committee dedicated to its conservation as well as buying 78 acres of land there, transforming it into the Shire. This private, picturesque landscape showcased the beauty of the gorge and even served as the birthplace of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Act.

A field guide and handbook of the thoughts, musings, observations, case studies, and histories (alternative, conventional & otherwise) on the elevated structure formally and now known as the High Line of the Borough of Manhattan for flâneurs, cosmopolitans & bon vivants : featuring illuminating texts & images by Mark Dion( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site Internet de Printed Matter: "A Field Guide and Handbook to the High Line is a pocket-sized artists' project offering an alternative survey to some curious aspects of New York's elevated High Line park. Presenting an account – both anecdotal and scientifically minded – of the fauna and insect-life that thrives there, the book serves as a colorful introduction to the vast and varied ecology of the High Line. Full of peculiar observations, rumors, speculations, and mostly-true facts, Field Guide captures the manifold experience of moving along the elevated greenway through a towering cityscape. Editor Ethan Hauser and art historian Kenneth Helphand have offered essay contributions that consider the historical significance of the structure and place it within a broader trajectory of urban design through precedents of "an elevated plain". The project is designed by New Yorker-illustrator Jorge Colombo and includes several of his own digital artworks that are finger painted on an iPhone. Illustrations of High Line wildlife are by Bryan Wilson. This re-edition of Field Guide includes a new cover colorway, updates the High Line's 87-year timeline (bringing us to present), as well as an expanded map from Naomi & Emmy Reis to include the newest section of the High Line extending north of West 30th street. This is the updated 2nd edition, co-published with Friends of the High Line, the nonprofit organization that maintains and operates New York's High Line park."
