Item description for Stucco, Stone and Steel: New Materials in Open Space Design by Topos (ed.)...

Today's landscape architects are finally breaking free from the constraints of a design philosophy which had advocated natural elements and the range of materials now being used in open space design is expanding enormously. Everything is possible but not everything is good and so "Stucco, Stone and Steel" presents successful projects which have been realized over the last few years and which are all distinguished by unusual materials or novel combinations of substances. The trends in contemporary art are inevitably appearing in modified forms in urban spaces. One example is the success of Cor-Ten steel. Sculptors such as Richard Serra elevated it to the spheres of fine art. From there it spread to architecture. Nowadays steel in public space is completely acceptable.
This new diversity is not necessarily smooth, loud or colourful. There are often rough surfaces, severe lines and low-key greys. The projects by 27 well-known designers presented in this book show the potential of aluminum, synthetic resin, stucco or steel in combination with natural stone, concrete - and of course with trees, lamps and benches, culminating in successful public design.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stucco, Stone and Steel: New Materials in Open Space Design?

ideas, not how-to's  Jun 7, 2002
THE REASON FOR MY LOWER STAR RATING IS THE FACT THAT THERE IS LIMITED HOW-TO INFORMATION - THE BOOK HOW EVER DOES HAVE WONDERFUL IDEAS AND INSPIRATIONS. ILLUSTATIONS ARE GREAT IF NOT ARTISTIC
