Floodscapes: Contemporary Landscape Strategies in Times of Climate Change
by Frederic Rossano (Author)
Through historical investigations and six contemporary projects implemented in four European countries, Floodscapes illustrates how flood-mitigation measures can be embedded in local space and culture. Merged with landscape development, agriculture, recreation, nature, and even urban growth, river management becomes a design issue, giving landscape architects and urban designers a prominent role in future transitions. This book provides an in-depth look into the most common natural disaster in the US, and the innovative solutions that have arisen.
