2013 COMPETITIONS ANNUAL. Ed. by G. Stanley Collyer and Daniel Madryga. Design Media Publishing Ltd, Hong Kong, 2015. 240 pp. with 434 ills. (377 col.). 27 x 27 cm. ISBN 9789881296856 In English.
Publisher's description: It was not all too long ago that somebody like Eero Saarinen brought in landscape architect, Dan Kiley, to collaborate on his projects. Even at that, landscape architects were seldom the team leaders in competing for those jobs. Most planning competitions -- even those where parks were the major focus -- were still won by architects, partially because they were the first to wholeheartedly adopt computer technology as part of the presentation process. When asked why landscape architects were not successful in those competitions, the answer was usually, "they aren't that proficient with the computer." Now that has all changed. Landscape firms such as Ken Smith, Michael Van Valkenburgh, George Hargreaves, Hoerr Schaudt, Stoss, Field Operations, Peter Walker, and West 8, just to name a few, are household names. They are usually leading teams for urban design projects, not to mention parks of all sizes and shapes. The leading landscape/urban design firms mentioned on these pages as competition winners, or important members of successful teams, is a tribute to the advances in the landscape profession and recognition that a project doesn't just end at the front door.
