Introduction

ByJens Balsby Nielsen, Torben Dam, Ian Thompson

This is a book about landscape construction and the importance of good detailed design, but it is not a book of standard details, nor will it instruct you how to set about creating details of your own. It might, however, convince you that the consideration of detail is as important as an exciting concept or a striking site plan. It might show how a big idea can be worked through into every detail, and how details can come together in a powerfully convincing way. It might inspire you to think more carefully about detail, and to see the design of construction as integral to the creative process.
