This book provides one of the first comprehensive discussions of contemporary landscape architecture practice across the Asian region. Bringing together established designers, writers, and thinkers with those of the new generation, Jillian Walliss and Heike Rahmann explore emerging Asian perspectives on urbanism, modes of engagement, design thinking, and construction in a field that has traditionally been dominated by North American and European influences.

The Big Asian Book of Landscape Architecture is divided into three thematic sections-Continuum, Interruption, and Speed-as characteristics that simultaneously influence an Asian practice of landscape architecture. Each section presents an interweaving of theoretical writing, reflection on practice, photo essays, and design projects to explore issues such as the shared cultural, philosophical, and physical understandings of landscape, the impact of modernity, and the effects of speed on Asian design and cities. This dynamic structure allows readers to dip into sections, rather than progress in a linear manner.
