Jun 6, 2017

The Nature of Cities book review, “Tracing Contemporary Landscape Architecture to Sound Ecological Foundations” written by Steward Pickett, examines Toward an Urban Ecology as a visually attractive and intellectually well-organized book, as well as, a form of stimulating dialogue between science and the practice of landscape architecture.

Pickett, co-director of the Baltimore Ecosystem Study Long-Term Ecological Research program, calls the book an, “excellent example of the best of contemporary ecological design theory and practice”. Additionally, he encourages those interested in ecological urban design to explore the book, promising a stimulating call to action towards the social health of urban systems.
