About the Book

The Shape of the Land: Topography & Landscape Architecture--the first book to center on this subject--presents the contributions of thirteen well-known practitioners and academics who discuss the forms and ramifications of reconfiguring terrain.

The essays range in content from pre-industrial precedents in the work of Humphry Repton to new digital topographic modeling systems without the use of contour lines, the treatment of waste products to the land art of the American Southwest. Practicing landscape architects focusing on the modeling of topography in the works considering both utility and aesthetics. In all, the book reviews the history, reasons, and results of at least three centuries of topographic interventions, while suggesting pathways into the future--as new technology and new necessities increase the functional demands placed upon landscape architects, while at the same time potentially offering new forms of artistic expression.
