A renewed concern for meaning in landscape architecture—and the ways by which meaning can be achieved—resurfaced during the early s after an absence in professional publications of almost half a century. This essay examines the sources of significance in landscape design and the possibilities—and limits—of designing meaning into landscape architecture. Meaning, it is argued, results less from the effects of a particular design than from the collective associations accrued over time.

Landscape Architecture Terms
The discussion of the history of landscape architecture is a complex endeavor as it shares much of its history with that of landscape gardening and architecture , spanning the entirety of man's existence. However, it was not until relatively recent history that the term " landscape architecture " or even "landscape architect" came into common use. For the period before , the history of landscape architecture, formally landscape gardening, is largely that of master planning and garden design for manor houses , palaces and royal properties, religious complexes, and centers of government. The first person to write of "making" a landscape was Joseph Addison in a series of essays entitled "On the Pleasures of the Imagination" in . Meason was born in Scotland and did not have the opportunity to visit Italy, but he admired the relationship between architecture and landscape in the great landscape paintings and drew upon Vitruvius ' Ten Books on Architecture to find principles and the relationship between built form and natural form. Olmsted and a man named George Oskar gave a different slant to the meaning of 'landscape architecture', using the term to describe the whole professional task of designing a composition of planting, landform, water, paving and other structures. Their first use of the term was in the winning entry for the design of Central Park in New York City.

Form and Fabric in Landscape Architecture 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.

Together form and fabric create a morphology of landscape useful for the development of visual—spatial design thinking and awareness.

Few lay people really understand what landscape architecture actually is: something to do with planting schemes, or with laying out the space between buildings? Certainly both of those activities are involved, but the landscape architecture profession is much broader than that. This book aims to give a comprehensive overview of what landscape architecture is and some idea of how it may develop over the next 40 or 50 years.
Garden landscaping consists of a layout creation and design process for various gardens and landscapes. Garden landscaping may be conducted by the property owner or landscaping professionals with enough background experience to provide quality work. Most landscaping professionals have an educational background in horticulture, including an extensive knowledge about plants, trees, and other greenery. Landscape architects possess an advanced degree in garden design and often pursue state licensing. Amateur gardeners gravitate towards learning through books, workshops, conventions, study programs, other educational materials, and arduous hours of trial and error. Garden landscaping for aesthetic purposes originated with Persian gardeners. Most of the Medieval European gardens consisted of a large variety of herbs for medicinal use, vegetables for food, and other botanicals for creative purposes.

Form, Meaning, and Expression in Landscape Architecture
This essay develops the thesis that the range in landscape design forms derives, directly or indirectly, from nature and its processes, often translated through a series of abstractions and artistic expressions. Limitations upon the range and diversity of forms created have resulted largely from cultural norms. Despite a perceived tension between the evolutionary tendency of art to renew itself through change and transformation, and the general accessibility of works which is very much dependent upon their normative properties, the greatest examples of design in the field accomodate both needs.

Он помнил, что сказал Клушар: немец нанял девушку на весь уик-энд. Беккер вышел из телефонной будки на перекрестке калле Саладо и авениды Асунсьон. Несмотря на интенсивное движение, воздух был наполнен сладким ароматом севильских апельсиновых деревьев. Спустились сумерки - самое романтическое время суток. Он подумал о Сьюзан. Но тут же в голову пришли слова Стратмора: Найдите кольцо. Беккер в отчаянии плюхнулся на скамейку и задумался о том, что делать .
Сьюзан смутилась. - Хорошо, а что, если… кошка. - Жила! - не задумываясь выпалил Беккер. - Жила. - Да.
Сьюзан Флетчер нетерпеливо мерила шагами туалетную комнату шифровалки и медленно считала от одного до пятидесяти. Голова у нее раскалывалась. Еще немного, - повторяла она мысленно.
