"As cities around the globe continue to expand ever outward, rather than upward, landscape has come to supplant architecture as an essential organizing element for the contemporary city. The burgeoning practices of landscape urbanism reflect this shift, in which the organization of horizontal surfaces and infrastructure across territory replace the dense spatial concentration and architectural fabric of the traditional city. In this new formulation, landscape comes to encompass much more than parks or gardens: it engages freeways, toxic industrial sites, and the needs of exploding exurban populations. With The Landscape Urbanism Reader, editor Charles Waldheim-who coined the very term "landscape urbanism"-gathers an international cast of the field's top practitioners and theorists, capturing the origins, contemporary milieu, and aspirations of this dynamic and revolutionary body of knowledge."--
