Contents Notes
The common thread that runs through these essays is the authors' conviction that the growing rift in landscape design - ecology vs. aesthetics - is an artificial one. Each author expresses abiding concern for the ecological preservation and enhancement of the site, while demonstrating clearly - with both words and pictures - that the best designs are those that harmonize aesthetic form and ecological function. Ecological Design and Planning is a source of ideas and inspiration for landscape architects and planners, architects, and all those who understand the importance of designing with nature.
