Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design (6th Edition)
James K. Wight and James G. MacGregorReinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design, 6/e is a perfect text for professionals in the field who need a comprehensive reference on concrete structures and the design of reinforced concrete. Reinforced concrete design encompasses both the art and science of engineering. This book presents the theory of reinforced concrete as a direct application of the laws of statics and mechanics of materials. In addition, it emphasizes that a successful design not only satisfies design rules, but also is capable of being built in a timely fashion and for a reasonable cost. A multi-tiered approach makes Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design an outstanding textbook for a variety of university courses on reinforced concrete design. Topics are normally introduced at a fundamental level, and then move to higher levels where prior educational experience and the development of engineering judgment will be required.
Theory in Landscape Architecture: A Reader (Penn Studies in Landscape Architecture)
Here, for students and practitioners of landscape architecture, architecture, and planning, is a single resource for seminal theoretical texts in the field. Essential for understanding the specific connections that have been made between landscape and social, cultural, and political structures, Theory in Landscape Architecture reminds readers that the discipline of landscape architecture can be both practical and formally challenging. Covering the past fifty years of theory, this primer makes an important contribution to a student's emerging professional ethics.
Landscape Architectural Graphic Standards
Landscape Architectural Graphic Standards is an entirely new, definitive reference work for everyone involved with landscape architecture, design, and construction.

Edited by an educator and former president of the American Society of Landscape Architects, it provides immediate access to rules-of-thumb and standards used throughout the planning, design, construction and management of landscapes.View sample pages from Landscape Architectural Graphic Standards.
Landscape Graphics
Grant ReidAnnouncing the new revised edition of the classic industry reference! Landscape Graphics is the architect’s ultimate guide to all the basic graphics techniques used in landscape design and landscape architecture. Progressing from the basics into more sophisticated techniques, this guide offers clear instruction on graphic language and the design process, the basics of drafting, lettering, freehand drawing and conceptual diagramming, perspective drawing, section elevations, and more. It also features carefully sequenced exercises, a complete file of graphic symbols for sections and perspectives, and a handy appendix of conversions and equivalents.
Landscape Operations: Management, Methods, and Materials (3rd Edition)
Leroy HannebaumAn ideal guide for those just entering the landscaping field, or for those already in the business who wish to develop and strengthen their management skills, this functional book ties together the myriad facets of a landscape nursery operation by focusing on the management, methods, and materials necessary to establish and maintain a successful business. Giving readers practical advice and key information, Hannenbaum shares insight gleaned from 31 years experience in nursery and landscape industries, landscape design, installation, and management. Covers a broad range of topics, i.e., technical information about lawn establishment; landscape design and installation; landscape construction; irrigation systems; and landscape maintenance. Also discusses important business topics as they apply to landscaping. New features include a section on construction methods for water features, and new appendices with weights and measures, conversion tables, and more.
Recovering Landscape: Essays in Contemporary Landscape Theory
The past decade has been witness to a remarkable resurgence of interest in landscape. While this recovery invokes a return of past traditions and ideas, it also implies renewal, invention, and transformation. Recovering Landscape collects a number of essays that discuss why landscape is gaining increased attention today, and what new possibilities might emerge from this situation. Themes such as reclamation, urbanism, infrastructure, geometry, representation, and temporality are explored in discussions drawn from recent developments not only in the United States but also in the Netherlands, France, India, and Southeast Asia. The contributors to this collection, all leading figures in the field of landscape architecture, include Alan Balfour, Denis Cosgrove, Georges Descombes, Christophe Girot, Steen Hoyer, David Leatherbarrow, Bart Lootsma, Sebastien Marot, Anuradha Mathur, Marc Treib, and Alex Wall.
Basic Elements of Landscape Architectural Design
Norman K. BoothSingularly highlights landscape architectural elements with clear design principles! Designed to be used as a helpful resource by individuals beginning their careers, Basic Elements of Landscape Architectural Design presents the thoughts and key design theories fundamental to landscape architecture in simple words and illustrations. Still available from Waveland Press, this highly regarded sourcebook offers the vocabulary, significance, characteristics, potential uses, and design guidelines for landform, plant materials, buildings, pavement, site structures, and water in landscape architectural design. It will help your students overcome common mistakes and misconceptions typical in the early phases of their design career and will heighten their understanding and awareness of the major physical components of the outdoor environment.
The Landscape Urbanism Reader
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.
