Item description for 'scape: The International Magazine of Landscape Architecture and Urbanism (Scape) by Stichting Lijn in Landschap...
The planning parameters of city planning and landscape architecture are changing as a result of global warming. 'scape 4 presents the most intelligent and exciting designs, and discusses the various possibilities planners have, for working with the changing climate.
Designing without water: heat and dryness demand new visions; resource scarcity calls for rethinking. Delta regions are the most densely populated areas in the world. Precisely in these regions the water is rising. In the Netherlands a number of studies and initiatives are investigating what solutions are possible and desirable. Arctic cities are no longer remote, whether economically or in terms of culture or climate. What were once extreme situations can be sensibly developed today.
Portrait: The French landscape architect Gilles Clment's concept of the "jardin plantaire" calls on designers to relate to the earth as a garden. A plea for collective responsibility, poetic and convincing.

Outstanding periodical... Aug 7, 2007
This is a great journal for professionals, or the aspiring urban planners and landscape architects. It covers environmental design from an international perspective with extensive essays, interviews in a well though out academic manner; without the ubiquitous adverts. This periodical can be enjoyed by any one from professionals to backyard gardeners, just about anyone whom is devoted to environmental conservation and sustainability. A. Thomas
