The Language of Landscape

The Language of Landscape


Spirn, Anne Whiston

Pap. New Haven, 1998

Book ID: 41496

This eloquent and powerful book combines poetry and pragmatism to teach the language of landscape and thereby to avoid making profound aesthetic and environmental mistakes in landscape design. Using examples that range across thousands of years and five continents, Anne Spirn examines urban, rural, and natural landscapes and calls for change in the way we shape and respond to them.
