These twenty-two essays provide a rich forum for assessing the tenets, accomplishments, and limits of modernism in landscape architecture, and for formulating ideas about possible directions for the future of the discipline. "Modern Landscape Architecture" brings together seminal articles from the 1930s and 1940s by Garrett Eckbo, Dan Kiley, James Rose, Fletcher Steele, and Christopher Tunnard, while contemporary writers and designers such as Pierce Lewis, Catherine Howett, John Dixon Hunt, Peter Walker, and Martha Schwartz examine the historical and cultural framework within which modern landscape designers have worked.

Industry Reviews

"A comprehensive contribution to recent critical literature addressing a previously neglected period, Modern Landscape Architecture's richness lies in the quality and diversity of the viewpoints of its contributors, which together offer a three-dimensional picture of the period. An important resource for serious researchers of the role played by the United States in the development of a modern landscape architecture, this is also a book to be dipped into with great pleasure, sampling here and there." Elsa Leviseur, Architectural Review
