Summary
This book investigates how contemporary landscape architecture invokes and displays the history of a site. These essays explore how designers do attach importance to how a location manifests its past. The process involves registering how geography, topography and climate determine design and how history discovered or even created for a site can structure its design and its reception. History can be evident, exploited, invented or feigned, it can be original or a new history which becomes part of how we view a place. Landscapes discussed in this book come from across Europe and the United States, highlighting the work of designers who have drawn from site history in their design, or have purposefully created their own historical account of the location. The author explores not just the historical past, but how new ground can be given a life and a future
