From the Publisher. In Recycling Spaces, the work of a world-renowned landscape practice, Martha Schwartz Partners, demonstrates the active role of the designed landscape in curating the evolution of healthy and sustainable urban centers. The book explores the potential of the public realm to answer some of the toughest questions facing 21st-century cities: How to breathe new life into dying city centers; how to creating meaningful neighborhoods in rapidly growing urban areas; how to add economic and social value to depleted resource landscapes; and how to adjust to the constant changes in the urban lifecycle. Through conversations with experts in the fields of landscape architecture, economics, and urbanism, and a selection of recent projects by Martha Schwartz Partners, this book offers a comprehensive picture of the role of public space in the long-term sustainability of the world’s urban centers and an optimistic approach to the future of our cities.
