9780470548783: Detailing for Landscape Architects: Aesthetics, Function, Constructibility

Based upon the best–selling book Architectural Detailing by Edward Allen and Patrick Rand, Landscape Architectural Detailing applies the same organization to the three major concerns of the landscape architecture detailer—function, constructibility, and aesthetics. Richly illustrated, this book approaches landscape architecture detailing in a systematic manner and provides a framework for analyzing existing details and devising new ones. Landscape Architectural Detailing includes material on details related to aesthetics, water drainage and movement, structures, construction assemblies, sustainable resources, and more.

Review:

"This eminently readable, profusely illustrated book is obviously designed as a professional reference, but its effect is more like consulting with a passionate expert than merely receiving a listing of standard recommendations. This pattern–based approach, in lieu of a mechanical categorization based on materials (wood, metal, stone) or application (paving, walls, canopies), focuses on conveying general principles, as well as specific details, across a range of conditions, which is impressive. This emphasis on aesthetics and not just visual, but aesthetics that appreciate elegance, simplicity, and timeless details permeates the book, and is part of what lifts it above other catalogs of technique." ( Landscape Architecture Magazine, Oct 2011)

From the Back Cover:

The new industry standard on landscape architectural detailing

Detailing for Landscape Architects takes the reader on an educational journey across three major areas of landscape architectural detailing aesthetics, function, and constructibility to demonstrate how powerful design patterns can transform thematic ideas into awe–inspiring built realities. Richly illustrated examples accompany concise discussions of a varied blend of landscape design/detailing issues such as water movement, soil environments, articulating structures and construction assemblies, life cycle costing, sustainability, health and safety, and more. This book approaches the subject of detailing in a systematic manner, and provides a balanced framework for design and workmanship that conveys the essence of the built landscape.

Detailing for Landscape Architects shows how details can:

  • Reinforce design ideas through the continuity and discontinuity of patterns

  • Actively contribute to the overall form or geometry of the design

  • Be designed to be durable and flexible while enhancing the entire design

  • Gracefully accommodate the natural growth and change of plant materials

  • Anticipate maintenance needs to minimize future disruptions

  • Maximize their cost effectiveness through understanding their function while designing to meet those functions

Including chapters that apply detail patterns to the design of an urban plaza, a roof deck, and a residence, Detailing for Landscape Architects offers guidance on solving specific technical requirements, while preserving and enhancing the visual qualities that celebrate innovation, and carry forth a timeless quality of building.
