What have cultural anthropologists, historical geographers, landscape ecologists and environmental artists got in common? Along with eight other disciplines, from domains as diverse as planning and design, the arts and humanities as well as the social and natural sciences, they are all fields of importance to the theory and practice of landscape architecture. In the context of the EU funded LE:NOTRE Project, carried out under the auspices of ECLAS, the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools, international experts from a wide range of related fields were asked to reflect, each from their own perspective, on the interface between their discipline and landscape architecture. The resulting insights presented in this book represent an important contribution to the development the discipline of landscape architecture, as well as suggesting new ways in which future collaboration can help to create a greater interdisciplinary richness at a time when the awareness of the importance of the landscape is growing across a wide range of disciplines. Exploring the Boundaries of Landscape Architecture is the first systematic attempt to explore the territory at the boundaries of landscape architecture. It addresses academics, professionals and students, not just from landscape architecture but also from its neighbouring discipline, all of whom will benefit from a better understanding their areas of shared interest and the chance to develop a common language with which to converse.

London-based Wilkinson Eyre have been drawing attention since the 1990s with a series of innovative and imaginative designs. This monograph covers the practice's work since 2000. During this period, their architecture has evolved significantly, but it continues to be distinguished by a willingness to adapt, exploring the boundaries between creative and scientific territories yet remaining specific to site and context. This book offers detailed documentation of some fifteen buildings and structures, with special attention paid to the context of each design. Starting with the highly acclaimed Magne Centre and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, winners of the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2001 and 2002, it traces the practice's increasing international reach with projects such as the Tensegrity Bridge in Washington DC and the Guangzhou West Tower in China. Two essays, by Peter Davey and Kurt W. Forster, give a detailed analyses of Wilkinson Eyre's approach.

"Landscape at Berkeley was published in conjunction with the centennial anniversary celebration of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning. Through scholarly essays, reminiscences, and illustrations, the monograph represents both commemoration of the Department and a greater understanding of the Berkeley campus. It also endeavors to trace Berkeley’s role in the history of the profession and design education in the United States. Landscape at Berkeley focuses on the first hundred years of teaching landscape architecture and environmental planning on the UC Berkeley campus and captures an important localized perspective as well as primary source evidence that will enhance broader examinations of the major issues that have shaped the profession and the environments we inhabit and visit. Furthermore, it will contribute to the increasing scholarly interest in and literature on the history of design education, particularly that of landscape architecture and environmental planners. As such, it will appeal to a diverse audience of scholars, students, design professionals, policy makers, and the general public. The monograph includes a comprehensive narrative history and schematic timeline of key events; scholarly essays exploring the activities of UC Berkeley students and faculty within the broader context of design history, education, research, practice, policy, and leadership; reminiscences of current and former faculty and students; and a color portfolio of student work illustrating curricular goals, program competitions, and the formative work of many individuals who have contributed to the profession locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally"--
