Professor Constant’s new book “The Modern Architectural Landscape” explores reintegration of architecture and landscape

In The Modern Architectural Landscape, Emil Lorch Collegiate Professor of Architecture and Planning Caroline Constant examines diverse approaches to landscape in the work of architects practicing in Europe and the United States between 1915 and the mid-1980s. Case studies explore landscapes in the public realm rather than the private garden, which had been a primary focus of much Western landscape theory and practice during the early decades of the century. Approaching landscape as an essential component of architecture's constructive endowment of material with social value, The Modern Architectural Landscape focuses on the precise material forms and ideological underpinnings of landscapes conceived of by architects, revealing them to be salient to the formulation of both modern architecture and the modern landscape.
