Publisher's description: The leisure and tourism volume of the "Top 100" landscape architecture series includes some of the most stunning built landscapes ever. From the London Olympics Park to the Jincheng Botanical Garden, these projects share one thing: they make readers want to head straight there. The Japanese spa Hoshinoya Kyoto in Japan was built on a river bank and visitors disembark from a gondola, while the OCT Intercontinental Hotel in China is surrounded by a theme park and contains Gaudi-inspired details and a full size Spanish galleon ship. Hotel Modera in Portland, Oregon boasts a 64-foot living wall, and the Centara Grand Mirage in Thailand is the ultimate beach resort with a water garden of waterfalls, caverns, an inner tube area, and slides under the shade of a giant sculptural totem. These enchanting spaces are limited only by the architect's imagination and are a visual stimulus for the reader's imagination.
