City Landscape emerged from the City Landscape Conference held in Bath in 1981. The conference formed a contribution to the Council of Europe's campaign for Urban Renaissance and was organized in association with The Civic Trust, The Landscape Institute, The Royal Town Planning Institute, and The Society of Industrial Artists and Designers.
The book is organized into four parts. Part One reviews the changes in urban landscape from early settlements to the establishment of more recent design philosophies, with emphasis on the need to develop the new opportunities now available to us. Part Two, still with strong inference to human aspects, takes the discussion into the fields of aesthetics, nature in the urban environment, and a creative approach to conservation and the establishment of urban woodlands. Part Three is an expression of confidence in modern design in the context of the urban environment, this extending into consideration of imaginative city environments by night. Part Four deals with education, participation, and management in the implementation of City Landscapes.
It is hoped that those concerned with the creation and maintenance of open spaces in cities and towns will be inspired by this book in their efforts to achieve high standards of quality in their contribution to the urban environment.
