The Routledge Handbook of Teaching Landscape

by Karsten (Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Norway) Jorgensen

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks Series

The Routledge Handbook of Teaching Landscape Synopsis

Written in collaboration with the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS) and LE: NOTRE, The Routledge Handbook of Teaching Landscape provides a wide-ranging overview of teaching landscape subjects, from geology to landscape design, reflecting different perspectives and practices at university-level landscape curricula. Focusing on the didactics of landscape education, this fully illustrated handbook presents and discusses pedagogy, teaching traditions, experimental teaching methods and new teaching principles. The book is structured into three parts: reading the landscape, representing the landscape and transforming the landscape. Contributions from leading experts in the field, such as Simon Bell, Marc Treib, Joerg Rekittke and Susan Herrington, explore landscape analysis, history and theory, design visualisation, creativity and art, planning studio teaching, field trips and site engineering. Aimed at engaging academic researchers and instructors across disciplines such as landscape architecture, geography, ecology, planning and archaeology, this book is a must-have guide to landscape pedagogy as it stands today.
