is a remarkable testament to a creative and comprehensive approach in the field of design. Fresh off the presses, Toward Legacy
is more than a beautiful coffee table book; it s a challenge to users of land today and long into the future.
Toward Legacy is a visual and literary walk through 35 years of evolution of the landscape architecture firm, Design Workshop. A formative point in that evolution was the development in 1998 of the philosophical statement around which the company has formed a systematic approach to its work. That statement has become a mandate: When environment, economics, art and community are combined in harmony with the dictates of the land and needs of society, magical places result. Places that lift the spirit. Sustainable places of timeless beauty, enduring quality and untold value - for our clients, for society and for the well being of our planet. These extraordinary landscapes are the result of Legacy Design. This book expresses through essays, project descriptions and case studies how Design Workshop seeks to move projects Toward Legacy.
