Full Description

Hargreaves Associates has been on the forefront of landscape architectural practice since its founding in 1983, creating a narrative approach to place making that layers history, ecology, and environmental phenomena. This book, featuring the built work of Hargreaves Associates explores how they create meaning through dynamic, interactive, and exultant landscape. Whether reductive or rich, highly programmed or passive, culturally interpretive or teeming with the phenomena of nature’s own systems, the built landscapes of Hargreaves Associates in this volume seek the power of connection to our day-to-day lives.

About the Author
The authors, George Hargreaves, Mary Margaret Jones, and Gavin McMillan have a combined 99 years of experience in the award-winning Waterfronts, Campuses, and Public Parks of Hargreaves Associates in the United States and around the world. As they work, teach, and travel worldwide, they are in the constant pursuit of the best design for the ongoing projects being developed. When home, their interests turn to vineyards; the perfect design of a deer-resistant Sonoma County perennial bed; re-working the plans, yet again, for a New York City family roof deck; and a low-maintenance New England garden that stays colorful from spring to fall.
