For many years landscape design was an often disregarded component of the building it surrounded. Today, however, the highly professional practice of landscape architecture is one of the most active and revolutionary areas of design. Drawing on a broad palette of ideas and concepts, landscape designers are reshaping man-made surroundings, from small-scale private gardens to large public spaces. Radical Landscapes presents entirely new ways of seeing and designing outdoor space. Innovative, sometimes synthetic materials, unusual plants, and unexpected forms offer alternative solutions to standard approaches to gardens and yards. To help the reader unlock the potential hidden in any landscape, the book is organized according to the most important issues and techniques of the moment: light and color, movement, order and objects, interaction, new contexts, urban interventions, and narrative. Each chapter is illustrated with works by internationally known designers and architects such as Fernando Caruncho, Adriaan Geuze, Kathryn Gustafson, Walter Hood, Maya Lin, Reiser & Umemoto, and Peter Walker. Meticulously researched and written in an engaging and accessible style by practicing landscape architect Jane Amidon, the texts are packed with information and ideas, a boundless source for professional and enthusiast alike. 433 illustrations, 313 in color.

Radical Landscapes: Reinventing Outdoor Space Hardcover. Kathryn E. Gustafson. I was disappointed in this book.

Radical Landscapes: Reinventing Outdoor Space Hardcover. an important resource for those interested in contemporary landscape architecture. - Azure, September 2005. The book was difficult to get into, really long winded. If I had a week to sit down and pore over it maybe it would be different, but let's face it, LA's are busy people!

Not what I was looking for.

Arrived as described.

There are some good landscape work. Nothing really extraordinary or really radical as you would expect from the title, but still a book with good ideas to inspire.

My personal suggestion for any 2nd hand book, "better buy a NEW BOOK"
Blackseeker
There is nothing 'radical' about any of the projects here. Nice they are, I'll give you that. But only nice. Nothing a professional in the field could not come up with. The picture quality is less than tops, and there are even teeny-weeny unreadable B&W photos that are attached to supposedly famous names. It kind of gives you the impression that the author was either running out of material to fill the book with or had too many friends who wanted a piece of the action.
If the only thing in common that is supposed to hold all the projects under one roof is that they are all 'radical', well, the author ought to choose another word, even if a more etymological meaning was intended by it (Radix, Latin, root).
I bought it at full retail price and feel I've been jipped, but at half the price, I suppose it's worth having...It's a CATALOGUE, basically.
