Description
In the author's words, this book is about 'seeing things that are too big to see.' His emphasis on strategy makes landscape fundamental-he says that every architectural move is set in a landscape. Norman England, for example, was constructed as a network of strong points, in a strategy of occupation. The eighteenth-century grid cities of the New World reflect a strategy of reason. Our current strategy is the economic exploitation of the Earth, an intricately woven blanket of commerce that covers up a multitude of other possibilities, many other ways to treat the surface of the globe-some of which are landscapes revealed in this book.
