Praise For…


“In their new book, editors Frederick Steiner, FASLA, George Thompson, and Armando Carbonell have made complex ideas about urban ecological design incredibly accessible. They make a convincing argument that ‘ecological literacy’ is an ‘essential base’ for anyone involved in urban planning and design today. There are 17 thought-provoking essays from leading landscape architects and planners from around the world.”
