Book Description:
What if environmentally damaged landscapes could not only be
remediated from an ecological standpoint, but also designed
to replenish an entire community as well as the nature
surrounding it? The Handbook of Regenerative Landscape Design
incorporates ecology, engineering, sociology, and design
elements into a new paradigm for environmental restoration
and the renewal of urban and cultural sites.
This is the first resource in the field to examine the
collaborative roles of scientists, landscape architects, and
urban planners in transforming degraded landscapes into
sustainable communities for both people and wildlife. Top
practitioners and theorists from different fields and
perspectives contribute innovative case studies that converge
in their emphasis on new uses for reclaimed land, rather than
a return to its original state.
In addition, this book is one in only a handful to address the
system conditions necessary for the repair of severely degraded
landscapes, especially in an urban context. It elucidates the
most suitable remediation strategies for treating degraded
environments such as industrial landfills, mining sites, buried
urban rivers, heavily polluted or effectively destroyed wetlands,
Superfund sites, and abandoned factories.
Bringing the perspectives of landscape architects, scientists,
and urban planners to a wider audience, the Handbook of
Regenerative Landscape Design demonstrates how ecological
landscape restoration processes can facilitate sociological
and urban renewal initiatives
