Item description for EDSA Asian Classical Landscape Line Drawing by Shanglin A&C Ltd....
Part art , part architecture, this book presents a selection of some 300 line drawings by EDSA landscape architects. The book is separated into three distinct sections for each type of drawing - plan views, where the image is presented as if drawn from directly above, fa ade views, which are, effectively, cross-sections of the design, often incorporating descriptions, dimensions, materials, etc., and perspective views, which present a more three-dimensional effect and are more informal. These intricate drawings are used in the design and tender submission stages of landscape architecture and planning. EDSA (Asian) is one of the world's leading planning and landscape architecture firms, whose repertoire ranges from residential buildings and high-end villas to resorts and theme parks. Their line drawing skills are also extremely highly regarded.

fact Apr 29, 2007
1) Technically, Mr. Smith drawing produced while he was an emplyee of the comany and get salary paid, belogs to the company ( if it is any good) 2)Some design and graphic are very good reference.The book colected typical projects done in China, while David Chen was in Charge of the EDSA's Beijing Joint Venture Office from 2000-2006. Most of the people who's work collected in the book have left the company since 2006 Chen's leaving.They are now with Ecoland in Beijing.
Plagerism at Best Apr 13, 2007
This book, "EDSA's Classic Asian Line etc", is a total rip off. I know this because no less than 9 of my illustrations have been published without my permission. The so-called author David Chen stole these drawings from a staff of largely Chinese designers then had the book printed in Hong Kong without the permission of the mother company EDSA (located in Olando Florida). He has featured his own drawings by prominately displaying his own signature, most of which were done in the last century and erasing almost all of the others, (save two of mine 'b. smith'). He then makes comment using landscape jargon on a few pieces in order to sound academic when in reality it is a huge info-mercial for one man. Fortunately the many spelling errors reveal the fact that he has hastily put this together revealing his own stupidity. I am amazed that such a company as this site would not research the authenticity of an item before promoting and selling it. For shame this site! regards, Broc Smith
Chinese Water Torture Jan 20, 2007
This is a bad book. It is, however, a good representation of what is happening to the global market economy, in the fact that a) the Chinese are knocking off everything, and b) US firms a who take advantage of the financial windfalls they recieve from working in Asia occasionally get burned. To EDSA's credit the graphics in the book are good, but there is too little content regarding process, the projects, or anything of interest to make this purchase worth $35. The text is "hirarious".
Interesting fact: this book was published by an ex-EDSA employee in CHina without permission of the US firm based in Fort Lauderdale, FL. this site must have a warehouse full of these things, because I got this book less than 36 hours after I purchased it with standard shipping.
