Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Venhaus′s book is carefully organized and offers clear, concise guidance on how to deal with sites in ways that uphold both livability and ecological functions. Designing the Sustainable Site ranges from big–picture explanations of current ecological thinking to detailed techniques that can be applied at the level of the individual site." ( Better! Cities & Towns, September 2012)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Here is a design manual for those interested in gaining the knowledge and skills necessary for achieving sustainability in residential settings. The book introduces the concept of regenerative design whereby built landscapes sustain and restore vital ecological functions. It guides readers through a design process relevant to new or retrofit residential landscapes that not only minimizes environmental damage, but help repair it. Photos, sketches and case studies from built projects illustrate concepts and practices. The text offers an excellent tool for a wide range of professionals involved in the residential landscape industry.

Thorough, well-researched, and engaging 11 septembre 2012
Par Amy Belaire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a PhD candidate focusing on urban ecology, I've found this book to be an incredible resource in thinking about how sustainable design principles can actually be implemented on the kinds of small sites that make up urban landscapes. I like the organization into "sustainable solutions" by environmental topic (e.g., air, water, biodiversity) combined with the overarching chapters that tie it all together in in terms of application. The case studies and photos help drive the messages home with real (and beautiful!) examples. This is a resource that's both practical and inspirational -- highly recommend it.

Practical Guide to Applying Sustainable Principles 30 août 2012
Par Brent A Baker, PLA, ASLA, CLARB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What a great resource! This book gives practical and applicable principles through detailed case studies with proven results. As a landscape architect designing and developing projects for the last 15 years, sustainability is always the forefront going into every project, but budgets typically "value engineer" out these "ideas" early on. Now I have the "proof is in the pudding" to back up our ideas as well as integrate new ones with our projects and our clients!

A Remarkable Guidebook 23 septembre 2012
Par Roy B. Mann, ASLA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With 1.5 million acres of farmland, forest, and other rural land lost annually in America to urban development and the continued ballooning of population worldwide (reaching 8 billion within the coming twelve years), Heather Venhaus' excellent guidebook on sustainable design couldn't be more timely.

Having served as a prime hand in preparation of the Sustainable Sites Initiative: Guidelines and Performance Benchmarks, the LEED-comparable volume published in 2009, Venhaus brings a fully educated sensibility and grasp of the issues - contextual, site analysis, site planning, design, construction period oversight, and post-completion monitoring, environmental stewardship, and much more - that are essential to any professional's learning curve and practice in the fields of sustainable site, community, and regional planning and design arts.

Readers will find extensive and relevant coverage on topics related to the realization of residential sites as well as public plazas, gardens, parks, and institutional and commercial grounds. There's much else as well--on stormwater-catching swales in public rights-of-way and parking lots, rainwater and air conditioning condensate harvesting, the optimal standards for roof garden and green wall design, and much, much more. We have here a cornucopia of practical technical knowledge and deep insights shaped by the author's many years of research, writing, and authorship in the field.

The book's numerous case studies, taken from locales in the U.S. and several in Europe, are well selected and enlightening. The photographs, diagrams, plans, cross-sections, and other illustrations, in addition to the book and page design, are attractive and effective. This book's a must.

An Outstanding Text Book, Highly Recommended 3 janvier 2013
Par Marni J. Evans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I think Designing the Sustainable Site is one of the most excellent text books I have ever had the pleasure of diving into.

Here's why.

Coming at sustainable site design and consulting from an architecture and green building background, this text has painted vivid pictures of site design strategies for me that I could never have envisioned, utilizing gorgeous photos of a variety of case studies.

Paired with technical clarity and concise, yet descriptive solutions, the book feels well researched and authorative in a comfortable and accessible way.

As an introduction for:

* anyone new to site design
* a professional beginning their career in landscape architecture or civil engineering
* colleges and universities
* any designer whom wants to understand the serious role that landscapes play in a healthy and viable future;

I highly recommend this book.

The book helps me to place the importance of sustainable landscapes within the context of the greater whole, as a practice that can begin to heal our planet, our ecosystems and ourselves.

Diving into solutions on the topics of biodiversity, invasive species, water shortages, urban flooding, water and pollution, human health and well being, the first third of the book sets up the why? and how? to mitigate these problems through designing the design process.

As a student of Bill Reed, however, I am acutely aware of how using the term, `integrated design' would imply that the design process has been fully realized as such, and the term `integrative design' may be a more accurate title for this process. I also think that the inference to 'regenerative design' would be more accurately described as 'restorative design', per Bill Reed, et al. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

One thing really bothering me, though, is that the text doesn't go deep enough in many topics, leaving me wanting more. Sometimes a paragraph on a specific topic is just enough to whet my whistle. In fairness though, each sub-topic could be a dissertation in itself and the author does list many resources to find more information.

Overall, Designing the Sustainable Site should be a staple in any professional or institutional library. The text book is an excellent primer on the topic, it is jam packed with inspiration, case studies and resources, and provides the context and considerations for making smart design decisions.

Great resource if you want to minimize the impact of building or developing a property 8 mars 2014
Par Gregory R. Baker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Heather Venhaus has done a remarkable job of explaining sustainability for small-scale sites in a manner which is practical and relevant. The book is clear, thorough and beautifully illustrated. It contains scores of references for further exploration. If you own, build, design, maintain, finance, regulate or legislate housing, this book is an eye-opener. If you want your next landscaping or gardening project to be earth-friendly, this book is a great tool. Even if you do not plan to pursue a Sustainable Sites certification, I still recommend this book. It is full of practical approaches and the science behind them. You will also find tips that will actually save you money over the "because that's the way we've always done it" construction methods.

This book, as well as the Sustainable Sites initiative in general, provides a key ingredient in the building process which has largely been missing from Western construction methods -- holistic assessment and planning. As a veteran of real estate development for 35 years, I know that very few houses or communities are planned with the full lifecycle impact of the site in mind. The developer, builder and landscape contractor will be gone in a few months -- the house in 50-100 years. This book will help you create a house and landscape which will perform sustainably and comfortably throughout it's lifetime.
