Landscape Architecture Research: Inquiry, Strategy, Design

M. Elen Deming, Simon Swaffield

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


In landscape architecture, research refers to the analysis of the decision making and systematic inquiry that occurs throughout the design process. The ever present tension between science and art defines and challenges landscape architecture. Landscape Architectural Research offers a framework for employing appropriate research methods in support of a more scientific approach to the discipline. This scientific approach will lead to better design solutions and will further legitimize the work of landscape architects for clients and allied professionals.
