Inside/outside : between architecture and landscape by Anita Berrizbeitia( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inside Outside constructs a framework of interpretation for architecture and landscape architecture in order to disclose relations between them which are normally overlooked. Five operations - reciprocity, materiality, threshold, insertion, and infrastructure - each initiate an alternative way of looking at the construction and representation of relationships between architecture, landscape, city, and individuals. Twenty-four projects each contribute in a unique way to the definition of an operation."--Jacket
Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates : reconstructing urban landscapes by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (studio di architettura)( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Instilling a poetics of place is a goal of Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA), the famous landscape design firm that has created successful public spaces in some of the countrys most challenging urban sites. In these locations, nature offers not so much an escape from city living as a teasing dialogue with built structures. The whole experience is aimed, as critic Paul Goldberger notes, to "make you see everything, city and nature alike, with a striking intensity." Richly illustrated and handsomely designed, this is the first publication to explore a wide range of MVVAs projects, focusing on the firms trend toward sites requiring complex technological solutions. Leading critics and historians look at twelve projects, dating from 1992 to the present, and each posing a challengesuch as contamination, isolation, and lengthy public approval proceedings. They explore the process through which the firm researches such issues and how solutions are embedded in the final aesthetics and spatial structure of the sites.--from publisher description
Roberto Burle Marx in Caracas : Parque del Este, 1956-1961 by Anita Berrizbeitia( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most landscape architects, and designers in general, the name Roberto Burle Marx immediately brings to mind his painterly vision of the landscape as well as his inspired use of the flora of his native Brazil. However, his work has consistently been presented in the design literature as if it existed in a vacuum, disengaged from the historical circumstances that provide both shape and meaning to public landscapes."

The promenades of Paris : Alphand and the urbanization of garden art, 1852-1871 by Gideon Fink Shapiro( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study investigates a formative episode in the history of modern landscape architecture and public space design: the rapid creation of public parks, squares, and tree-lined thoroughfares in Paris between 1852 and 1870, the period of the French Second Empire, to form a series of interconnecting "promenades." It seeks to identify continuities and innovations with respect to traditions of garden art, urban art, and engineering in France. It asks how a multi-disciplinary team of public servants, led by the engineer Alphand, responded to the simultaneous demands of cultural and utilitarian necessities, and how the public received the new gardens. The research method consists primarily in interpretive analysis of archival and historic texts, design drawings, popular media accounts, art and literature, and physical landscapes. Of particular interest is Alphand's treatise, Les Promenades de Paris (1867-73), which points back to a lineage of earlier texts, but also forward to an age in which environment and infrastructure are fundamental to the urban landscape. The record shows that Parisians had mixed reactions to the growth of the city and to the new vegetated spaces that would supposedly improve public health via fresh air. The promenades of Paris also show an intriguing ambiguity in defining the public good as collective health and/or collective pleasure. Alphand and his collaborators in the Service des Promenades et Plantations, or parks department--including Barillet-Deschamps, Davioud, Belgrand, Darcel, and André--forged a systematic approach that accommodated practical necessities, difficult sites, and a wide range of scales. Their work was bound by an ethics of purposefulness and respect for the limits of a given situation. Nonetheless they pursued an artistic and decorative agenda, reflecting a desire to ennoble the public sphere. The landscapes that they designed are marked by a frequent divergence between visible and invisible elements, the latter encompassing both buried infrastructures and intangible metaphors. Categories of true and false natures gave way to questions of what urban landscapes do, in relation to their surroundings, and what people do in them
