Constructing Landscape

October 17, 2008

Constructing Landscape is a systematically structured reference work about the techniques and theories applied when constructing outdoor spaces. All the relevant topics are vividly covered, from materials and surfaces via building outdoor features to the use of plants. The book shows how landscape designers and architects can implement their creative ideas with expertise and technical skill.

Constructing Landscape
is in three parts: “Materials”, “The principles of loadbearing structures” and “Structural elements and building methods”. The first part surveys various building materials used in landscape architecture, and their specific qualities. Surface properties and possible working modes are also discussed. The next section explains the fundamental principles of statics, joints for loadbearing elements, foundations for structural components, and supporting structures. The third chapter is devoted to the principles of construction and techniques associated with various structural elements. A large collection of realized sample projects illustrates particular building tasks with photographs and plans.

The editor Astrid Zimmermann is a freelance landscape architect, and an academic assistant in the Department of landscape and building construction at the TU Berlin. She has assembled a group of expert authors with considerable experience in planning and teaching for this work.
