Item description for Landscape Planning in Singapore by Edmund Waller...
Landscape architecture plays a vital role in creating Singapore's Garden City image. This book helps to explain the Republic's successful implementation of environmental policies since independence to achieve its present day image. There are ten chapters in the book. The first three cover background information, the historical setting and the work of the current government. The approach is to evaluate different plans against natural, social and sensory criteria. The next six chapters are case studies, selected to show landscape planning policies in more detail. The last chapter includes a discussion of comments made about Singapore's landscapes followed by a summary. The book is illustrated by a profusion of maps, diagrams and plans.
