Kerb 15: Landscape Urbanism
Publisher: RMIT University 2006/2007, ISBN: 9771324804155, Editors: Andy Miller, Claire Martin and Stephen Kerr, Format: Softcover, 210 x 300 mm, 82pp
The fifteenth, international issue of Kerb focuses on the theme of landscape urbanism. The discipline of landscape architecture needs to reassess its understanding of ecology and shift the discourse from environmental protection and management to one of constructed ecologies where current ecological conditions are examined through an understanding of the social and historical processes of urbanisation.
The editors have brought together to consider these issues – research laboratory founders, ecologists, urban designers, journalists and activists, students, graduates and graduates, leading architectural and landscape architectural practices, as well as the editors and contributors to the key landscape urbanism publications: The Landscape Urbanism Reader and Landscape Urbanism: A Manual for the Machinic Landscape.
This issue features contributions from Peter Connolly, Jacky Bowring, Mathanraj Ratinam, Ildiko Tarjan, Claire Martin and many more.
