Using a highly illustrated analysis, the book identifies a structure for understanding landscapes, their use and perception, and for guiding the design activity which is such a fundamental part of the discipline. Landscape architecture is a visual subject and the book is illustrated with the author's own drawings; explanatory text will accompanies the illustrations and there is a full introduction to the book and each section.
