Synopsis: Society is becoming preoccupied with the issue of landscape, not only as an area of design and study but also as it is affected by building development and the maintenance of eco-systems. This interest ranges well beyond the immediate professions of landscape architecture, architecture and town and regional planning. This book extends the existing debate to examine recent projects and their part in our growing concern about, and responsibility for, the maintenance and enhancement of our natural spaces.
About the Author: Michael Spens qualified as an architect at Cambridge University, and has received several design awards. He focuses on the engagement of architecture with landscape. Whilst researching Alvar Aalto, from 1993 he worked in support of a restoration programme for Aalto's Viipuri Library in Russia that involved professionals from Russia and Finland, and published "Viipuri Library 1927-1935: Alvar Aalto" (Academy Editions, 1994). Knighted by the President of Finland, in 2002 he became University Reader in Architecture at Dundee University. Other publications include "Landscape Transformed"
(Academy Editions, l996) and "Modern Landscape" (Phaidon, 2003), and he also contributes to "AD, Architectural Review, Architectural Research Quarterly" and "Topos" (Munich).
