9780415581059: Urban Wildscapes
Críticas:

"This book enriches the readers understanding of landscapes beyond the notions of wild or cultured, urban or rural, and can be recommended to everyone." - Ingrid Sarlöv Herlin, Landscape Research

“Combining theory with illustrated examples and case studies, the book demonstrates that urban wildscapes have far greater significance, meaning and utility than is commonly thought, and that an appreciation of their particular qualities can inform a far more sustainable approach to the planning, design and management of the wider urban landscape.” – Michael Smith , Green (Living) Review

"The book's mostly photographic illustrations reflect the contributors' purposeful avoidance of conventional design methods, including the drawing of site maps. They stress slow processes of popular input to arrive at solutions, resisting large-scale obliteration of wildscapes. These ideas often are at odds with governmental regulations and developers' short-term profit motives... Recommended" CHOICE

"This book offers highly recommended reading for landscape professionals, as well as for urban planners and others interested in shaping more interesting and liveable cities." – Cecil C. Konijnendijk, Journal of Regional Science

"...an incredibly comprehensive study of the subject matter" Pietra Basilij, Spacing Magazine

“...a fascinating and broad-ranging description of how urban wildscapes are being used (both formally and informally)...I would highly recommend this book to anyone with a professional interest - or more importantly a personal stake - in how we engage with the wilder places around us in urban areas”Landscapism

"This book is a strong argument for how urban wildscapes can be seen not as negative but as informative, naturally occurring, 'a useful nexus' for responding to these challenges. As such, Jorgensen and Keenan were able to curate a dynamic collection of papers that help to resolve contemporary misconceptions and offer a unique and valuable interpretation of the urban wildscapes that surround us." – Ellen Ziegler, Spacing Vancouver

"...a seductive and enticing read" Pip Wallace, Environmental Planning Programme, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Waikato, New Zealand

"Urban Wildscapes offers a vantage point on urbanism in which natural, rather than human, agency is the catalyst for transformation. The book is structured into here sections— theories, case studies and implications— with some 25 contributors reporting from the urban field."Mason White, Domus
