Aesthetics of the natural environment [Monograph]
Brady, E. \ 2003
aesthetic value - philosophy - theory - arts - nature

Aesthetic experience is one of the fundamental ways that we develop a relationship to our natural surroundings. Emily Brady provides a comprehensive study of this type of experience and the central philosophical issues related to it, developing her own original theory of aesthetic appreciation of nature. She provides useful background to the current debate and an up-to-date critical appraisal of contemporary theories. The context of the contemporary debate is laid out through a discussion of aesthetic experience and aesthetic qualities; early theories of aesthetic appreciation of nature, including the beautiful, the sublime, and the picturesque; and differences between artistic and environmental appreciation and interpretation. Brady situates her own approach in relation to a set of noncognitive accounts of appreciation. Her "integrated aesthetic" brings together various features of appreciation, including the senses, emotion, and imagination, with a reappraisal of the concept of disinterestedness. These ideas are further developed within the more practical domains of aesthetic judgment and education of the environment and through an examination of the role of aesthetic value in environmental conservation.

Autarkie : zelfvoorzienende woonwerklandschappen [Monograph]
Moet, D. \ Boeije, L. \ 2005
housing - homes - living conditions - work places - design - self sufficiency - physical planning

Steeds grotere organisaties regelen dat wij zijn aangesloten op basisvoorzieningen als gas, water, licht en riool. Deze schaal-vergroting en koppeling van systemen brengen afhankelijkheid met zich mee en hebben daarnaast ook een gelimiteerde inrichting van de ruimte tot gevolg. Autarkie - het ter plaatse produceren van water en energie en het verwerken van het eigen organisch afval en afvalwater - maakt het mogelijk om de ruimte in het buitengebied op een nieuwe manier te gebruiken , rijk aan kwaliteit, identiek en met een grote mate van flexibiliteit. Autarkie - Zelfvoorzienende woonwerklandschappen toont hoe zelfvoorziening op het gebied van voeding, energie en water in de loop van de geschiedenis in Noordwest-Europa een rol heeft gespeeld, wat hedendaagse toepassingen zijn en welke perspectieven autarkie als ontwerpconcept biedt voor de behoefte aan groene leefmilieus en de actuele landschapsopgaven in Nederland.

Cities as sustainable ecosystems : principles and practices [Monograph]
Newman, P. \ Jennings, I. \ cop. 2008
urban areas - towns - ecosystems - biodiversity - participation - urban planning - sustainability - urban ecology - modeling

Cities as Sustainable Ecosystems shows how cities and their residents can begin to reintegrate into their bioregional environment, and how cities themselves can be planned with nature’s organizing principles in mind. Taking cues from living systems for sustainability strategies, Newman and Jennings reassess urban design by exploring flows of energy, materials, and information, along with the interactions between human and non-human parts of the system. Drawing on examples from all corners of the world, the authors explore natural patterns and processes that cities can emulate in order to move toward sustainability. Some cities have adopted simple strategies such as harvesting rainwater, greening roofs, and producing renewable energy. Others have created biodiversity parks for endangered species, community gardens that support a connection to their foodshed, and pedestrian-friendly spaces that encourage walking and cycling.

Constructing Landscape is a systematic introduction to technical and constructional open space planning, with all the relevant topics, from the most common materials and surfaces to the construction of open space elements and the use of plants. This book is divided into two sections, Materials and Surfaces and Building Construction and Building Elements. The first section provides an overview of the various building materials of land-scape architecture and their specific characteristics. It also explains the qualities of surfaces and the different approaches to treating them. The second section begins with an introductory chapter explaining the principles of statics, the connections of loadbearing elements, and the various approaches to anchoring building components and supporting structures.

Construction in the landscape : a handbook for civil engineering to conserve global land resources [Monograph]
Carpenter, T.G. \ cop. 2011
landscape - civil engineering - ecological engineering - landscape architecture - aesthetic value - construction - resource management

Construction in the Landscape describes the impact of construction on the land and landscape where it takes place. Geographical coverage is necessarily global to reflect the great variation both in people’s economic and social needs and in the shortage or abundance of natural resources. Part I introduces both land resources, whether used for agriculture, human settlement or mineral extraction or conserved as scenery, wildlife habitat or for the undefined needs of future generations; and construction, its products, skills, processes and impacts on land resources. Part II describes specific forms of civil engineering - from landform adaptation, through dams and river control works, coastal construction and transport infrastructure to particular types of structure such as bridges, towers and power stations, or the layout of complete settlements. Part III deals with regional planning of construction and land use in different geographical circumstances - from fine scenery, through rural countryside to city and suburban development - and to the sort of land arrangements that may be sustainable for an increased but hopefully more civilized human population a century hence.

Design for ecological democracy [Monograph]Table of contents
Hester, R.T. \ cop. 2006
landscape architecture - land use planning - human ecology

Over the last fifty years, the process of community building has been lost in the process of city building. City and suburban design divides us from others in our communities, destroys natural habitats, and fails to provide a joyful context for our lives. In Design for Ecological Democracy, Randolph Hester proposes a remedy for our urban anomie. He outlines new principles for urban design that will allow us to forge connections with our fellow citizens and our natural environment. He demonstrates these principles with abundantly illustrated examples--drawn from forty years of design and planning practice--showing how we can design cities that are ecologically resilient, that enhance community, and that give us pleasure. Hester argues that it is only by combining the powerful forces of ecology and democracy that the needed revolution in design will take place. Democracy bestows freedom; ecology creates responsible freedom by explaining our interconnectedness with all creatures. Hester's new design principles are founded on three fundamental issues that integrate democracy and ecology: enabling form, resilient form, and impelling form. Urban design must enable us to be communities rather than zoning-segregated enclaves and to function as informed democracies. A simple bench at a centrally located post office, for example, provides an opportunity for connection and shared experience. Cities must be ecologically resilient rather than ecologically imperiled, adaptable to the surrounding ecology rather than dependent on technological fixes. Resilient form turns increased urban density, for example, into an advantage. And cities should impel us by joy rather than compel us by fear; good cities enrich us rather than limit us. Design for Ecological Democracy is essential reading for designers, planners, environmentalists, community activists, and anyone else who wants to improve a local community.
