Design with nature, not against it 16 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I can't believe I am the first to review this book. It was one of the most important books in my library when it first came out over 25 years ago and I still refer to it once a year or so.
Ian McHarg pioneered both a "logical" way to approach human enterprise within the natural world, and the analytic/presentation methodology which is now used by virtually all planners. At least the technicals aspects of the methodology are used; the real struggle to understand the principals behind prioritizing land use is still ongoing.
If you're looking for some clear and easy to understand directions to help get us out of the mess we've made of our world, "Design With Nature" is a good place to start.

Ian McHarg's _Design With Nature_ 2 août 2001
Par Ferren MacIntyre - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Recently re-issued in a 25th-anniversary edition, this book has obviously retained its position. Why? Because it is *the* place to begin an environmental impact statement. It should be on the bookshelf, and engraved in the heart and mind, of anyone connected with, or concerned about, planning for the future.
McHarg takes the simple idea of overlay maps--which may contain any type of information--and builds up a procedure for making the difficult trade-offs involved in resolving competing ideas about land use.
No local community should be without a set of McHarg overlays. Any citizen group concerned about the actions of a 'developer' should be able to prepare its own overlay for the town's McHarg base map, showing its assessement of areas that need protection and areas that are suitable for the proposed use. This may not make everyone happy, but it at least guarantees that the issues and specific sites are understood by all, and that specific concerns have been fairly addressed.
Buy this book for your town planner.

Before GIS There Was McHarg 27 mai 2009
Par Robert Steelquist - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Ian McHarg's Design with Nature revolutionized landscape planning just at the time when the modern built environment was being recognized for its devastating effects on natural systems. McHarg devised techniques for planners to envision not just the finished product of human development, but its complex interaction with watersheds, wildlife habitat, viewscapes and anything else that could be represented as a layer on a map. Fast forward to today....Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are complex databases that organize information into the "layers" that McHarg proposed. GIS analysis has found its way into urban planning, oil spill response, wildfire management, epidemiology, endangered species management, socio-economic analysis and many other forms of spatial planning and design. Maps that are products of GIS analysis are digital versions of the tissue and mylar overlays of McHarg's vision and technique. This book is essential reading -- not because planners aren't using its ideas (almost universally, with GIS, they are) but because they don't understand GIS's debt to McHarg's pioneering thinking.

The "Bible" for Land Use Planning 28 décembre 2009
Par Andrew J. DiLiddo Jr. - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I was first introduced to this book in 1970 at the time of the first Earth Day Event. I was studying at a university in Appalachia and was exposed to reclamation of land laid barren by strip mining. My roommate was studying to be an architect and introduced me to this book that he was using for one of his courses. I was so fascinated by the concepts in the book I just had to purchase my own copy. I grew up in urban wastelands of industrialized Detroit and Cleveland and always wondered if there was any such thing as urban planning or land use planning. Ian McHarg assured us it was possible and necessary. All the books written since in this field stand on the shoulders of this giant. Sadly, the author passed away in March of 2001 from pulmonary disease, likely acquired as a boy in industrialized Glasgow Scotland. Anyone interested in Sustainability and Green Design should have this in their library.
