"Landscape architecture is often left out of the conversation when talking about technology, but sensors, advanced modeling techniques, and robotic manufacturing will eventually cause a seismic shift in landscape architecture," writes The Architects Newspaper.
With this in mind, the publication recently listed the book Responsive Landscapes, by Daniels Faculty Assistant Professor Justine Holzman and Bradley Cantrell, chair of Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginal School of Architecture, among it favourite tech books of 2018.
Holzman researches landscape infrastructure for regional design, responsive technologies in landscape architecture, and the epistemic history of scientific landscape modelling. Responsive Landscapes is "the first book to rationalize interactive architecture and responsive technologies through the lens of contemporary landscape architectural theory." As described on its website, the book explores various approaches taken to utilize responsive technologies in current professional practice.
