Some brief overview of book

This book examines the connections of landscape construction and materials through a series of case stories linking the material origins with their new site. The author uses 6 key sites in New York as the springboard to investigate the relationships between the paired landscapes of production and consumption - in an age dedicated to design's agency in sustainable city building, it is imperative that we consider all aspects of material practice, including the hands and landscapes that materials pass through. By considering the complex and multi-layered social and ecological consequences of the building of landscapes, designers can make better decisions about construction for the future.
