Phyto presents the concepts of phytoremediation and phytotechnology in one comprehensive guide, illustrating when plants can be considered for the uptake, removal or mitigation of on-site pollutants. Current scientific case studies are covered, highlighting the advantages and limitations of plant-based cleanup. Typical contaminant groups found in the built environment are explained, and plant lists for mitigation of specific contaminants are included where applicable. This is the first book to address the benefits of phytotechnologies from a design point of view, taking complex scientific terms and translating the research into an easy-to-understand reference book for those involved in creating planting solutions. Typically, phytotechnology planting techniques are currently employed post-site contamination to help clean up already contaminated soil by taking advantage of the positive effects that plants can have upon harmful toxins and chemicals. This book presents a new concept to create projective planting designs with preventative phytotechnology abilities, ‘phytobuffering’ where future pollution may be expected for particular site programs. Filled with tables, photographs and detailed drawings, Kennen and Kirkwood's text guides the reader through the process of selecting plants for their aesthetic and environmental qualities, combined with their contaminant-removal benefits.

Is Landscape...?" provides a compelling investigation into the multiple facets of landscape architecture to examine its position as a profession and discipline. With contributions from a host of international academics and professionals, this book addresses a range of topics including history and theory, ecology and planning, through to more challenging philosophical ways to define landscape architecture. Rather than seeking a singular understanding, this books recognises that landscape architecture can be explored through terms used in other disciplines and professional fields to help establish an interdisciplinary knowledge of the subject. This book will provoke thought and will offer insightful contributions to the reader's understanding of landscape architecture. With inclusion of full colour images, this is an ideal introductory text for landscape architecture courses that will provide a springboard for seminar discussions.

There is a growing evidence base that documents the social, environmental and economic benefits that urban trees can deliver. Trees are, however, under threat today as never before due to competition for space imposed by development, other hard infrastructures, increased pressure on the availability of financial provision from local authorities and a highly cautious approach to risk management in a modern litigious society. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all of us in construction and urban design disciplines to pursue a set of goals that not only preserve existing trees where we can, but also ensure that new plantings are appropriately specified and detailed to enable their successful establishment and growth to productive maturity. Aimed at developers, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and arboriculturists, this book takes a candid look at the benefits that trees provide alongside the threats that are eliminating them from our towns and cities. It takes a simple, applied approach that explores a combination of science and practical experience to help ensure a pragmatic and reasoned approach to decision-making in terms of tree selection, specification, placement and establishment. In this way, trees can successfully be incorporated within our urban landscapes, so that we can continue to reap the benefits they provide.

Das neue Bauen mit Holz hat vielfältige Gründe und Vorteile gegenüber konventionellen Bauweisen: Holz ist ein nachwachsender Baustoff und hilft als CO2-Senke beim Klimaschutz, zugleich ist er dank moderner Berechnungs- und Fertigungsverfahren für zahlreiche Bauaufgaben einsetzbar. Holz weist hervorragende konstruktive wie raumklimatische Eigenschaften auf und lässt sich problemlos mit sämtlichen anderen, gängigen Baumaterialien kombinieren. Dieses Fachbuch gibt anhand von 24 internationalen Projekten einen Überblick über die derzeit realisierte Vielfalt an Möglichkeiten im modernen Holzbau. Die Beiträge dokumentieren in Texten, Bildern und Plänen sowohl die architektonischen als auch die konstruktiven Qualitäten zeitgemäßer Holzbauten, von der Entwurfsplanung über das Tragwerk bis ins Detail. Die vielfältigen Einsatzbereiche beruhen dabei auf einer in Jahrhunderten aufgebauten, holzbaulichen Expertise sowie auf aktuellen Forschungen im modernen Ingenieurholzbau. Diese Spezialdisziplin hat sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten besonders in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz signifikant weiterentwickelt und ist heute weltweit führend.

Published at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Sustainable Landscape Construction took a new approach to what was then a nearly new subject: how to construct outdoor environments based on principles of sustainability. This enormously influential book helped to spur a movement that has taken root around the U.S. and throughout the world. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most important developments in this landscape revolution, along with the latest scientific research in the field. It has been expanded to provide even more ideas for designing, building, and maintaining environmentally sensitive landscapes. It is essential reading for everyone with an interest in “green” landscape design. Like its predecessor, the new edition of Sustainable Landscape Construction is organized around principles that reflect the authors’ desire to put environmental ethics into practice. Each chapter focuses on one over-arching idea. These principles of sustainability are clearly articulated and are developed through specific examples. More than 100 projects from around the globe are described and illustrated. A new chapter details ways in which landscape architectural practice must respond to the dangers posed by fire, floods, drought, extreme storms, and climate change. Sustainable Landscape Construction is a crucial complement to basic landscape construction texts, and is a one-of-a-kind reference for professionals, students, and concerned citizens.

Rügen, das bedeutet nicht nur Kreidefelsen, Strände und die Aussicht auf das Meer; die Insel birgt vielmehr zahlreiche besuchenswerte Gärten, von denen nicht wenige zu den schönsten im Land gehören. Und immer mehr Menschen gehen erfolgreich auf Entdeckungsreise. Erstmals widmet sich daher nun ein Buch ausführlich in Wort und Bild diesem Thema. Jens Beck, Experte in Sachen Gärten und an der Rekonstruktion mehrerer Anlagen auf Rügen beteiligt, und Thomas Grundner, der Landschaftsfotograf Mecklenburg- Vorpommerns, stellen sie vor: Die großen Parks wie den in Pansevitz oder den berühmten in Putbus, aber auch kleine, romantisch gelegene Gärten. Deutlich wird, welche Vielfalt Rügen für Gartenliebhaber zu bieten hat. Ergänzt wird das Buch durch einen Ausflug auf die Insel Hiddensee, in die malerisch von Pflanzen umrahmte Gerhart-Hauptmann-Gedenkstätte.
