Detailing makes a landscape unique, and a landscape architect outstanding. Featuring many of the world’s most highly acclaimed landscape architects, this book presents 40 of the most recently completed and influential landscape designs through specially commissioned, consistent drawings.

Each project is presented with colour photographs, site plans, and sections as well as numerous construction details. There is also a brief descriptive text, detailed captions, and in-depth information for each project. The projects are presented in clear and concise layouts over four pages. All the drawings are presented at standard architectural scales for easy comparison.

Intended for architects, engineers and landscape architects, the book will also be invaluable for architecture, garden and landscape design students, for whom it will be a resource not only for understanding the work of the best contemporary landscape architects, but also as a tool for their own design work.
