Summary

Form and Fabric in Landscape Architecture provides an original, visual approach to the study of landscape architecture by creating a spatial morphology based on use and experience of landscapes. It explores aesthetic, spatial and experiential concepts by providing a structure through which landscapes can be understood and conceived in design. 'Fabric' is the integrated structure of whole landscapes, while 'form' refers to the components that make up this fabric. Together form and fabric create a morphology of landscape useful for the development of visual-spatial design thinking and awareness. This book is intended as both an introduction to the discipline for students of landscape architecture, architecture and planning, and a source of continuing interest for more experienced environmental designers.

I give this book 6 out of 10 acorns

This book was recommended by a designer who came to speak during a PDC I attended at Paul's place. The information presented in the book is good, and there's really quite a bit covered as far as different techniques used to create visual interest in the landscape.

The reason this book didn't get a better rating from me is that the presentation of the material really leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. The illustrations used throughout the book are all rough pencil sketches that are universally blurry and often very busy. I would have liked this book much better if it included crisper sketches or better yet proper illustrations and photographic examples of the subject matter.
 
I don't get it. A whale wearing overalls? How does that even work? It's like a tiny ad wearing overalls.
