Ideal for both working professionals and students, this classic work serves as a truly comprehensive resource for site design and planning. Now in a new and fully updated Fourth Edition, A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction presents both design elements and technical site planning information in a clear, concise, and highly visual format. As a teaching tool, it guides the reader through the actual development of a site plan, and demonstrates how to carry out the necessary calculations and specifications. By combining a design approach with technical background data, it enables creative talent to be used to the utmost advantage. Its broad range of coverage makes it an excellent study guide for the registration examinations in both architecture and landscape architecture. The first of its three sections introduces the reader to the critical thinking process, and fully explains design guidelines, resource analysis and site selection, visual design factors, natural elements, land use, and circulation. The second section, on site engineering and landscape construction, covers contour lines, grading and earthwork calculations, site drainage, alignment of horizontal and vertical curves, site and landscape construction details, plant material, and specifications. The final section offers a broad array of illustrative project types, including detailed material on sports facilities and playgrounds, rooftop gardens, and residential development concepts. A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of photos, site plans, and line drawings, as well as an abundance of figures, tables, charts, and sample problems. New material in the Fourth Edition includes resource analysis with wetlands and steep slope districts, the latest accessibility guidelines, updated coverage of bikeway design, road alignment and circulation patterns, and safety guidelines for playgrounds. For practitioners and students in architecture, landscape architecture, planning, and civil engineering, A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction offers an indispensable and authoritative reference. A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction Now, in a new edition, this classic reference integrates the principles and processes of site design with detailed technical information. Featuring a design approach to site planning fully supported by detailed technical data, A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction has become widely recognized as the best single-source reference work available in the field. Its clarity, comprehensiveness, and attractive visual format make it an indispensable reference tool for both practitioners and students, as well as an excellent study guide for the registration exams in architecture and landscape architecture. Organized to follow the actual development of a site plan, this book guides the reader through the planning process and covers all the key elements, including: Basic design principles Site selection and resource analysis Land use and circulation Development design guidelines Contour lines, grading design, and earthwork calculations Drainage and erosion control Roadway alignment Site and landscape construction details Plant material in site planning Specifications Illustrative project types, including sports facilities, playgrounds, rooftop gardens, and residential development concepts With over 560 illustrations, including photos, site plans, and drawings, A Guide to Site Planning and Landscape Construction is a rich resource for architects, landscape architects, planners, and civil engineers.

Consider this ... How do we handle the convergence of landscape architecture, ecological planning, and civil engineering? What are convenient terms and metaphors to communicate the interplay between design and ecology? What are suitable scientific theories and technological means? What innovations arise from multidisciplinary and cross-scalar approaches? What are appropriate aesthetic statements and spatial concepts? What instruments and tools should be applied? Revising Green Infrastructure: Concepts Between Nature and Design examines these questions and presents innovative approaches in designing green, landscape or nature as infrastructure from different perspectives and attitudes instead of adding another definition or category of green infrastructure. The editors bring together the work of selected ecologists, engineers, and landscape architects who discuss a variety of theoretical aspects, research projects, teaching methods, and best practice examples in green infrastructure. The approaches range from retrofitting existing infrastructures through landscape-based integrations of new infrastructures and envisioning prospective landscapes as hybrids, machines, or cultural extensions. The book explores a scientific functional approach in landscape architecture. It begins with an overview of green functionalism and includes examples of how new design logics are deducted from ecology in order to meet economic and environmental requirements and open new aesthetic relationships toward nature. The contributors share a decidedly cultural perspective on nature as landscape. Their ecological view emphasizes the individual nature of specific local situations. Building on this foundation, the subsequent chapters present political ideas and programs defining social relations toward nature and their integration in different planning systems as well as their impact on nature and society. They explore different ways of participation and cooperation within cities, regions, and nations. They then describe projects implemented in local contexts to solve concrete problems or remediate malfunctions. These projects illustrate the full scope presented and discussed throughout the book: the use of scientific knowledge, strategic thinking, communication with municipal authorities and local stakeholders, design implementation on site, and documentation and control of feedback and outcome with adequate indicators and metrics. Although diverse and sometimes controversial, the discussion of how nature is regarded in contrast to society, how human-natural systems could be organized, and how nature could be changed, optimized, or designed raises the question of whether there is a new paradigm for the design of social relations to nature. The multidisciplinary review in this book brings together discussions previously held only within the respective disciplines, and demonstrates how they can be used to develop new methods and remediation strategies.

A complete guide to site grading for designers and other visual learners Grading With Design in Mind: Landscape Site Grading Principles is a comprehensive guide to grading, written specifically from the design perspective. Heavily illustrated and non-technical, this book meets the needs of designers and visual learners by presenting the principles and methods of site grading with less emphasis on engineering, and a strong focus on the effect on the overall aesthetic. Written by a professor in America's number-one ranked undergraduate landscape architecture program, the book guides readers step-by-step through the process of solving various grading problems in real-life scenarios. Landscape designers, landscape architects, and engineers need to have a deep understanding of site grading as the foundation of any project. Grading plans must not only solve practical requirements, but also create landforms that contribute to the aesthetic ambition of the overall site and architectural design concept. Grading With Design in Mind takes a highly visual approach to presenting modern grading techniques and considerations, providing designers the guidance they need to become competent in site grading while understanding the design implications of the subject. Features include: Numerous illustrations to support the text Step-by-step examples Professional grading plans Studying the professional grading plans helps readers better understand the real-world application of grading principles in different situations. Site grading is a complicated topic with plenty of on-site variables, but Grading with Design in Mind breaks it down into clear, concise instruction with value to both professionals and students in the field of landscape design.
