Critical Perspectives in the History of Environmental Design

This new series is published in collaboration with the Library of American Landscape History (LALH), a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster understanding of the fine art of landscape architecture and appreciation of North America’s richly varied landscape heritage through books, exhibitions, and online resources.

The goal of this series is to foster a cross-disciplinary dialogue about the relationship of humans to nature. It is based on the idea that environmental design involves a conjunction of many fields, including landscape architecture, architecture, urban planning, forestry, regional planning, engineering, ecology, horticulture, historic preservation, geography, and American literature. Topics in the series might be a place (or places), a designer (or designers), other historical figures important in the history of environmental design, a significant theme or movement revealed and understood by analyzing the design of places, or an assessment of historical literature on the subject. While the focus is the United States, international linkages and the evolution and transference of ideas through time and space are considered important to the American story.
