Representing Landscapes


Routledge 2019

purchase at Nadia Amoroso's last book Representing Landscapes: Analogue (Routledge, 2019) focuses the art of hand drawings and why they are still relevant and important in our digital age. Nadia takes us on a journey through the diverse Landscape Architecture University programs showcasing the best in student work. Simple hand drawings can tell powerful stories if we know “how to “ do them. Each chapter illustrates a different style and type of drawing along with an essay from the leading professors at the major universities. Visual communication is the heart of Landscape Architecture. Her book series captures that spirt. Nadia Amoroso, PhD, is a faculty member at the University of Guelph, Department of Landscape, School of Environmental Design and Rural Development.
