Since cities have been massively populated, metropolises have initiated an aggressive and visible transformation of the environment. The landscape was modified with large buildings that did away with large green areas. Over time this trend has been minimized to make way for a greater awareness of the protection for our natural environment.
Man is looking for a way to respond to this major challenge, which is the regeneration of formerly wasted spaces and the construction of new green areas. Architects, landscape architects and designers are responsible for providing solutions to maintain these areas in good condition and to develop new projects that provide functionality and an improvement for citizens, and as well as leaving their personal stamp.
This book aims to combine art and landscaping by showing different projects illustrated with pictures and drawings.
