With the progress of urbanisation worldwide, the conflict between architecture and green areas in the urban context is becoming increasingly pressing. The concept of integrated landscape arises as an important approach to increase green areas while not occupying valuable inner city lands, and thus finds its way in more and more cities around the world. The book focuses on the theme of integrated landscape, addressing its two main categories respectively: green walls and rooftop gardens. Thirty-nine cutting-edge projects are selected to present the latest trends in landscape design. Graham Cleary, executive of Green Roofs Australasia and an accredited green roof professional, is invited to be chief editor of the book, in which integrated landscape design is discussed in detail, while technical key issues such as plant selection, irrigation systems and maintenance are involved.
