Kiến trúc cảnh quan là gì? Có phải là làm vườn? Hay là nghiên cứu khoa học? Hoặc nghệ thuật kiến trúc?Bruce Sharky(Giáo sư trường ĐH Louisiana) cho rằng đó là tất cả những điều trên và nhiều câu hỏi khác nữa đều có trong cuốn sách Thinking about Landscape Architecture(Tư duy về Kiến trúc cảnh quan): Các nguyên tắc nghề nghiệp dành cho KTS thiết kế thế kỷ 21. Cuốn sách Tư duy về Kiến trúc cảnh quan cung cấp một cái nhìn toàn cảnh về các nguyên tắc, giúp các chuyên gia và những người mới trong nghề có một nền tảng về kiến trúc cảnh quan để nghiên cứu và thực hành. Với hơn 400 hình ảnh, cuốn sách Tư duy về Kiến trúc cảnh quan đã phác thảo chủ đề và tìm hiểu làm như thế nào mà từ nền tảng là thiết kế sân vườn nay kiến trúc cảnh quan đã “leapt over the garden wall”(vượt qua bước tường sân vườn) để bao quát các khu vực như thiết kế đô thị, công viên, quy hoạch cộng đồng và khu vực, phục hồi môi trường sống, thiết kế cơ sở hạ tầng xanh và bền vững,… Các chủ đề được đề cập đến trong Tư duy về Kiến trúc cảnh quan bao gồm:– Những ảnh hưởng mà các nhân tố tự nhiên và con người có được khi thiết kế cảnh quan và nguyên tắc được đặt ra như thế nào để giải quyết những thách thức này;– Ví dụ về công trình kiến ​​trúc cảnh quan hiện đại – từ quản lý nguồn nước và các thành phố đi bộ đến các dự án nổi tiếng như New York High Line hay Công viên Olympic Luân Đôn; và sự khám phá về cách mà nghệ thuật, thiết kế, khoa học, trồng trọt, và xây dựng kết hợp trong một nghề.Tư duy về Kiến trúc cảnh quan là cuốn sách hoàn hảo cho các chuyên gia cũng như những người muốn hiểu rõ hơn về nghề Kiến trúc cảnh quan hấp dẫn này. T H IN K ING ABOUT LAN DSC APE A RC H ITECTURE What is landscape architecture? Is it gardening, or science, or art? In this book, Bruce Sharky gives a complete overview of the discipline to provide those who are new to the subject with the foundations for future study and practice The many varieties of landscape architecture practice are discussed with an emphasis on the significant contributions that landscape architects have made across the world in daily practice Written by a leading scholar and practitioner, this book outlines the subject and explores how, from a basis in garden design, it “leapt over the garden wall” to encapsulate areas such as urban and park design, community and regional planning, habitat restoration, green infrastructure and sustainable design, and site engineering and implementation Coverage includes: s the effects that natural and human factors have upon design, and how the discipline is uniquely placed to address these challenges s examples of contemporary landscape architecture work––from storm-water management and walkable cities to well-known projects like the New York High Line and the London 2012 Olympic Park s exploration of how art and design, science, horticulture, and construction come together in one subject Thinking about Landscape Architecture is perfect for those wanting to better understand this fascinating subject, and those starting out as landscape architecture students Bruce Sharky is a professor at the Robert Reich School of Architecture at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA, and a registered professional landscape architect His interests in landscape architecture are varied and have evolved over the years and through work in varied locations and countries He has worked professionally in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Winnipeg, as well as in state government He has lectured and taught design courses in countries as varied as China, Chile, Japan, and Israel, and was a Fulbright Scholar in Mexico and Portugal He had a private landscape practice in Anchorage, Alaska, for 15 years prior to taking on the position of director of the Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture, Louisiana State University In 1990, Professor Sharky was honored as a Fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects for his years of service and contributions to the profession “The book establishes definitions of methodology, scope of work, outlook, and design concepts for students and professionals alike It touches succinctly and clearly into the history and evolution of the profession and of the scale and typological landscapes that professionals are committed to today It also defines the amplitude and limitations of a profession difficult to define A book much needed at schools, as well as in private corporations and public institutions.” Mario Schjetnan, FASLA, Landscape Architect/Architect T H IN K ING ABOUT LAN DSC APE A RC H ITECTURE PRINCIPLES OF A DESIGN PROFESSION FOR THE 21ST CENTURY BRU C E SHA RK Y First published 2016 by Routledge Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon OX14 4RN and by Routledge 711 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10017 Routledge is an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, an informa business © 2016 Bruce Sharky The right of Bruce Sharky to be identified as author of this work has been asserted by him in accordance with sections 77 and 78 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 All rights reserved No part of this book may be reprinted or reproduced or utilised in any form or by any electronic, mechanical, or other means, now known or hereafter invented, including photocopying and recording, or in any information storage or retrieval system, without permission in writing from the publishers Trademark notice: Product or corporate names may be trademarks or registered trademarks, and are used only for identification and explanation without intent to infringe British Library Cataloguing-in-Publication Data A catalogue record for this book is available from the British Library Library of Congress Cataloging in Publication Data Sharky, Bruce, author Thinking about landscape architecture : principles of a design profession for the 21st century / Bruce Sharky — First edition pages cm Includes bibliographical references and index Landscape design Landscape architecture I Title SB472.45.S53 2016 712—dc23 2015029624 ISBN: 978-1-138-84717-0 (hbk) ISBN: 978-1-138-84718-7 (pbk) ISBN: 978-1-315-72693-9 (ebk) Typeset in Univers by Keystroke, Station Road, Codsall, Wolverhampton To my parents Louis and Beatrice who brought me into this world and my mother Sophie who prepared me to stay This page intentionally left bank C ON TE N TS LIST OF FIGURES XI PREFACE XVII ACKNOWLEDGMENTS XIX CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION—WHAT IS A LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT?

It was never intended to return borrowed woodland, wetlands, and farm landscapes used for urban development and other human development enterprises We find ourselves in the twenty-first century having to consider returning portions of these borrowed landscapes as part of larger strategies to make our cities safer (from storm-caused floods, pollution, and other undesirable impacts), reducing the impacts of global warming, and instead improving water quality and increasing biodiversity The objective of these giving back strategies is to enhance the resilience and health of environments we have altered and even erased from the Earth Rebuilding wetlands, re-establishing woodlands, converting high water-consuming urban landscapes into less demanding ones by establishing drought-tolerant landscapes are examples of the growing areas of demand for the expertise of landscape architects The process of rebuilding or giving back normally involves a great deal of catch-up as the economically driven consumption and utilization of the environment and its resources seem to leave dysfunctional landscapes at a faster pace than does the awareness of our political and governing mechanisms to mediate against the losses and resulting deleterious impacts Repurpose Repurposing is an initiative that considers the reuse of built places, structures, and facilities that no longer serve new populations and economic initiatives that have replaced an earlier demographic or economy In many cases repurposing will require retrofitting older facilities that no longer serve the needs of new users with new designs to accommodate the new uses or programming changes Retrofitting with new designs may also be necessary to address changing environmental conditions such as rising sea levels or increased threats from flooding conditions in a region Building retrofitting could include elevating structures or modifying the grounds to increase their water-holding capacity in the form of detention ponds or redirecting storm water to safer locations (such as wetlands, if they exist) Examples of facilities that may need to be retrofitted due to changing demographics include parks, commercial and industrial areas, and street landscapes Adaptive reuse is the converting of structures or spaces for new uses of derelict and even abandoned buildings, such as commercial malls and whole districts, such as warehouses and industrial sites Warehouse districts, because of their desirable close proximity to urban centers, are being converted into highly desirable and valued living and commercial space Railroad rights-of-way no longer in use are being converted to walking trails and bicycle routes Industrial zones have been converted to other purposes such as the industrial area of North London that was converted first as the venue for the London 2012 Olympics Subsequently the same Olympic site was repurposed for outdoor recreation, new housing, and commercial uses 206 THE FUTURE OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE Water Conservation Water is a limited resource that is essential to humans and all forms of life Demand for water continues to rise at the same time as the availability of and access to clean water and water quality are diminishing Traditional approaches to managing storm water have been to get rid of it as quickly as possible by directing surface water from roofs, paved areas, and landscaped grounds to be disposed of via costly storm-water infrastructure systems The Sustainable Sites Initiative, developed by the American Society of Landscape Architects, promotes the design of landscapes that reduce water use, improve filtration, and promote healthy rivers, lakes, and oceans The emerging water management approaches that are being designed and implemented essentially mimic natural systems Rather than getting rid of storm water as quickly as possible via gutters and sewers, smarter strategies exist to create systems that mimic nature’s capacity to efficiently manage water A sustainable approach to storm water management involves finding ways to capture storm water on site and use it for recharging groundwater, irrigation purposes, or in ornamental water features.1 Landscape architects have the necessary knowledge and experience to lead or to contribute their expertise in the design of more sustainable approaches to water management and land development They have been applying low impact water management and design principles on new development projects as well as retrofitting older streets and neighborhoods Other areas where landscape architects are being involved are in designing new developments or converting older designed landscapes, selecting plant species with low water needs, including endemic species, instead of using non-native species, including lawn grasses that require significant supplemental water for irrigation and maintenance Conserve and Rebuild Soil Soil is an important and limited resource that, like water, is essential to human and other forms of life Intensive use of agricultural soils and poor stewardship of soils associated with resource extraction activities (such as forest harvesting and mineral extraction) will over time result in the degradation, contamination, or the outright loss of soils Eventually areas where the soils have been degraded or lost will require a rebuilding strategy While landscape architects may not necessarily be trained in soil management, like agriculture agronomists, they will still have a role as part of a team of experts in the soil-rebuilding process Their involvement will be particularly needed where extensive tracks of land are targeted for renewal into native habitats as part of a larger conservation management policy For instance, depleted agricultural lands may be converted to native grassland cover, low-lying areas rebuilt into wetlands, and upland slopes reverted to forest cover The rebuilt landscape may be incorporated into parklands or areas of national conservation interest 207 THINKING ABOUT LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE Landscape architects who accept as their professional responsibility the concept of stewardship of the environment will consider design and planning strategies that not exploit or abuse the soil or associated natural resources As human populations grow and the pressures to develop the land, water, and other resources become more acute, designers who think globally—that is, consider maintaining to the extent possible the Earth’s natural resources—will produce designs that are sustainable, causing less disruption and abuse of limited natural resources Specialization Landscape architects may find themselves at an advantage in developing areas of specialization as projects become more complex The anticipated increase in project complexity will require designers to have greater expertise and experience in developing strategies that mitigate between human needs and the capabilities of the environment It is anticipated that specialization within the profession will become more prevalent, just as engineers have developed specialties in geotechnical, structural, civil, and environmental engineering Right now landscape architects claim to be able to everything but as all these “everythings” become more technical and scientifically based, landscape architects must prepare academically and through targeted experience in order to be considered credible in their claims Take, for example, green roofs and walls The city of Shanghai, China, now requires that new buildings must have 30 percent of their roof area landscaped As other cities adopt similar requirements for green roofs as well as low impact water management, reducing the heat island effect and other quality of life and environment improvements, specialization will be the logical response for the profession to embrace Areas in which landscape architects have developed and will continue developing specialized expertise will include, for example, the design of sports fields/facilities, more walkable and livable communities, a sustainable approach to golf course design, water management, including LID and BMP, wetlands restoration and management, and historical and cultural conservation of heritage properties Global Practice The profession will continue the trend of being a part of the global practice of providing design services, particularly in developing and emerging regions Global practice will have the additional characteristic of involving teams of consultants with a multi-national composition This will require greater knowledge and appreciation of other cultures in order to work effectively in teams and in diverse language and cultural situations Cultural studies as part of a professional curriculum would help landscape architects in this regard Giving them the tools in cross-cultural communication through cultural literacy would prepare them to assume a more effective role in the global environment of design and planning China, for instance, has planted unsustainable landscapes along its extensive road building and new town development throughout the country As water 208 THE FUTURE OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE becomes scarce, it will not be practicable to continue maintaining these landscapes as they are today The lush exotic plantings in the roadway medians and parkways will need to be replaced with more drought-tolerant plants Consider California and other parts of the American Southwest that have experienced water shortages plus a warmer climate The climatic conditions have dramatically deviated from years of adequate rainfall and cooler temperatures With the reduction of rainfall and rising temperatures, landscape architects must approach plant selection and planting methods from the perspective of making decisions under xeriscape (low water demand) conditions Older plantings may need to be replaced with droughttolerant plants and might need devising planting schemes that incorporate ground cover materials that reduce transpiration so as to conserve water and reduce irrigation requirements Multi-Disciplinary Team Approach to Design It is common today for landscape architects to work on projects with professionals from other disciplines The ramifications of a world experiencing ever greater threats from global warming, fresh water scarcity, increased demands on already over-cultivated lands, and the loss of productive landscapes from resource extraction and urbanization will require a multi-disciplinary approach to planning and design Utilizing multiple disciplines will enhance the effectiveness of work approached as a team effort More creative solutions can be expected when individuals with different sets of eyes and expertise join forces Thinking outside of the box will become the norm when diverse disciplines seek design strategies, challenging each other in the process Individuals with effective communication and people skills will be sought in the team-building process Communication skills include verbal, writing, and graphic skills Graphic skills include digital and analog capability Being well organized and having good reasoning ability are important and desirable attributes for members of a team supported by a depth of knowledge and experience Technology Where technology will take the profession is a wide-open proposition Perhaps science fiction writers have already spun stories with a central cast of space-age landscape architects and their fellow disciplines designing with hardware and software that seamlessly guide the construction of a project as the required documentation is produced This notion is nearly within our grasp today The office of the future or the future working environment will become more and more dispersed as people will no longer need to be physically located in a traditional office Landscape architects will work in an environment or range of environments that are convenient and more readily accessible, negating the necessity of daily commutes or trans- or inter-continental travel The technology of wearable computers and remote access to home appliance and utility systems can easily be adapted to selfmaintaining environments, including landscapes Irrigation systems are already operating that are self-regulated Sensors in the ground 209 THINKING ABOUT LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE “tell” the computer that controls the electrical valves to turn on the water when the soil moisture falls below a specified range Sensors also trigger another set of related controls when additional fertilizer and other elements need to be applied through the same irrigation system Genetic engineering will certainly be a part of future landscapes, allowing the designer to identify physical and growing qualities desired so that plant geneticists can produce specialized, grown-to-order plant species Any attempt at looking into the crystal ball of what to anticipate as far as future technology advances is probably futile Technological advances already have been so rapid and dramatic and will continue to bring applications that are best left up to the science fiction writers who entertain us and tantalize our imagination at this time The key descriptor of how we might anticipate working in the future is the word remote: working remotely, interacting and exchanging working files with clients and consultant team members remotely, and relying more on sensors to remotely provide data to improve our design and planning decision-making With the rapid advances of technology we will have greater capacity and ability to work globally, thus extending our professional reach to more diverse markets And, finally, looking back at the traditional areas of practice in which landscape architects have excelled, such as garden and planting design, these required great skill and knowledge associated with selecting plants in creating memorable landscapes A similar knowledge and skill set will become even more relevant to the future of the profession Landscape architects who are knowledgeable about plants and who have the skill in making well-informed plant species selections will extend their competence well beyond creating gardens for pleasure in the future The plant knowledge of landscape architects will be applied to extensive, more complex design strategies in areas such as: green, non-structural approaches for cleaning surface storm water in the creation of rain gardens and low impact water runoff detention systems; rebuilding wetlands and other damaged or reduced ecosystems; rebuilding polluted soils in brownfields or reclamation sites Those in the profession who are experienced and prepared will be involved and contribute as communities and nations seek to rebuild losses of habitat, water resources, and landscapes damaged by the excesses of narrowly focused land use and the resource development decisions of the past Landscape architects will be engaged in rebuilding and reimaging more healthy and sustainable futures by applying non-structural design solutions This is quite an exciting prospect for those thinking about becoming or preparing to be landscape architects Thinking about landscape architecture may not be a field for you but someday soon those who join the profession will be changing the world for the betterment of the lives of others 210 THE FUTURE OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE Note Further Reading Readings on the future of landscape architecture:
