With populations decentralizing and cities sprawling ever-outward, twenty-ﬁrst-century urban planners are challenged by the need to organize not just people but space itself. Hence a new architectural discourse has emerged: landscape urbanism.
In The Landscape Urbanism Reader Charles Waldheimwho is at the forefront of this new movementhas assembled the deﬁnitive collection of essays by many of the ﬁeld's top practitioners. Fourteen essays written by leading ﬁgures across a range of disciplines and from around the worldincluding James Corner, Linda Pollak, Alan Berger, Pierre Blanger, Julia Czerniak, and morecapture the origins, the contemporary milieu, and the aspirations of this relatively new ﬁeld. The Landscape Urbanism Reader is an inspiring signal to the future of city making as well as an indispensablereference for students, teachers, architects, and urban planners.
Charles Waldheim is the editor of numerous books on landscape urbanism and the associate deanand director of the Landscape Architecture Program at the University of Toronto.
