"With its clear language and impeccable organization and design, River.Space.Design. serves not only as a great resource for design ideas and examples, but also as a challenge to how we consider rivers in an urban context [...] In the book's introduction, the author writes, 'What has been lacking up to date is an overview that presents the wide diversity of design possibilities for urban river spaces in a systematic and transferable way. This book aims to fill this gap and serve as a primer and reference for designers of urban spaces.' River.Space.Design. is absolutely successful in this regard and will hopefully inspire designers to find ways new ways to engage their community's rivers."In: http://dirt.asla.org/2013/01/16/rethinking-our-relationship-with-rivers/Vom Verlag:
River. Space. Design is a systematically organised reference book for the design and planning of river spaces. Urban river landscapes need to unite a broad range of requirements - most notably flood control, ecological considerations and open space design - often within tight space constraints. Taking a processoriented approach, this book offers concrete guidelines for sustainable longterm interventions. Arranged in two volumes, this book contains a comparative analysis of more than 50 successful projects alongside rivers and streams in Europe, and dissects them into their individual design elements. The result is a catalogue of effective design strategies and tools that provides readers with an attractive and inspiring overview of the broad and varied spectrum of design possibilities for river spaces. Each project is illustrated with photographe taken especially for the book and each principle is illustrated with explanatory diagrams. The book's interdisciplinary structure is of interest to landscape architects, architects, engineers, urban planners and hydrologists alike.
