Encompassed by this publication is a project to map, engage, reimagine and investigate design, research and practice in landscape architecture. Aside from seeking the relationship between academic and practical approaches, it asks whether the design process can also be research in producing work that is exemplary in dealing with the complexities of the discipline. Evident is the existence of tension between pragmatics, performance and social position in approaches to design in landscape architecture. Richly illustrated, the book includes contributions by 25 practitioners in the field, among them, Hajime Ishikawa, Julian Raxworthy, Eduardo Rico and Elizabeth Mossop.
