Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change

Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change by Larry Weaner & Thomas ChristopherGarden Revolution shows how an ecological approach to planting can lead to beautiful gardens that buck much of conventional gardening??s counter-productive, time-consuming practices. Instead of picking the wrong plant and then constantly tilling, weeding, irrigating, and fertilizing, Larry Weaner advocates for choosing plants that are adapted to the soil and climate of a specific site and letting them naturally evolve over time. The lushly-photographed reference is an important moment in horticulture that will be embraced by anyone looking for a better, smarter way to garden.

Urban Design Thinking: A Conceptual Toolkit

Urban Design Thinking: A Conceptual Toolkit by Kim DoveyUrban Design Thinking provides a conceptual toolkit for urban design. Bridging the gap between theory and practice, it shows how the design of our cities and urban spaces can be interpreted and informed through contemporary theories of urbanism, architecture and spatial analysis.

Relating abstract ideas to real-world examples, and taking assemblage thinking as its critical framework, the book introduces an array of key theoretical principles and demonstrates how theory is central to urban design critique and practice. Thirty short chapters can be read alone or in sequence, each opening a different...

Urban Disaster Resilience: New Dimensions from International Practice in the Built Environment

Urban Disaster Resilience: New Dimensions from International Practice in the Built Environment by David Sanderson

Accelerating urbanization worldwide means more urban-centered disasters. Floods, earthquakes, storms and conflicts affecting densely populated areas produce significant losses in lives, livelihoods and the built environment, especially in comparison to rural areas. Poor urban dwellers, almost always the most vulnerable, too often bear the brunt. Aid agencies and urban professionals have been slowly adapting to these new conditions, but older models and practices hinder the most effective engagements.

Drawing directly from the experiences of urban disasters in the Philippines, Chile, India, Thailand,...

Martin Williams presents this short, accessible introduction to the area of structural dynamics. He begins by describing dynamic systems and their representation for analytical purposes. The...

The Peaceful Path: Building Garden Cities and New Towns

The Peaceful Path: Building Garden Cities and New Towns by Stephen WardThe title of this book is taken from Ebenezer Howard's visionary tract To-morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform.
