Publisher's description: Landscape design around the world is currently undergoing a tremendous change as angular, minimalist landscapes are transitioning into more integrative landscapes containing undulating terrains, organic curves, and diverse and detailed mini-ecosystems. This volume looks at the most forward-thinking and ecologically aware projects around the world, from Lincoln Park to the Vancouver Convention Centre Expansion to the New Dutch Waterline Recronomic Scenario to the Bordeaux Tramway. Organized into the chapters "Waterfront Design," "Riverfront Design," "Streetscape Design," "Infrastructure Design," and "Civic Square," the eco-friendly landscapes compiled here are sustainable and often use native species. Along with their creative resource management, these are simply stunning architectural projects that focus on life and growth within the urban environment.
