COAST, COUNTRY NEIGHBOURHOOD, CITY
by Barrett, Michael

ISBN: 9780473325503
PUBLISHER: Isthmus
FORMAT: Hardback
PAGES: 444
PUBLICATION DATE: 1.11.2015


DESCRIPTION:
First and foremost, this is a book about New Zealand landscape architecture and urban design, viewed through the lens of Isthmus, an award-winning design studio that for more than 25 years has been shaping and reshaping the way we experience our land and cityscapes. It is also a story about New Zealand, about changing perspectives and attitudes to the use of land and water, the way we organise our cities, the way we play, live and work, and the lessons from the past that can influence the way we build new communities. Coast, Country, Neighbourhood, City presents 25 projects, from small playscapes that put children back at the heart of the city right through to large infrastructural works, such as the New Plymouth Coastal Walkway, that have transformed cities by turning them around to face the water. These works are set against against a background of contemporary debates about making the new New Zealand, housing and population intensification, urbanisation and landscape protection. It is hoped that this book will bring these integrated works of landscape, urban design and architecture to a wider audience. This is a generous, well-crafted and beautifully photographed book that also explains the process of design through drawing. The 25 projects illustrate design ideas, the stories behind them, and the impact that these project have had on their communities. Importantly, Coast, Country, Neighbourhood, City is the first published compilation of works detailing
