With People in Mind by Rachel Kaplan

Book Description

With People in Mind explores how to design and manage areas of "everyday nature" - parks and open spaces, corporate grounds, vacant lots and backyard gardens, fields and forests - in ways that are beneficial to and appreciated by humans. The authors introduce a new way of thinking about natural areas and present concrete and detailed recommendations for effective design and management. Enhanced by a wealth of illustrations and images, With People in Mind translates the results of many years of empirical studies into practical design and management approaches. It is a readable and flexible guide for practitioners and students in landscape architecture, planning, resource management, environmental psychology, and other fields.

Manet by Rachel Kaplan Manet, Paperback (March 1995)

The work of Manet is defined in this book - he was an artist who interpreted modern life with a fresh handling of colour and tone. Yet he craved official recognition and was dogged by notoriety. He rejected traditional conventions in paintings such as "Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe" and "Olympia".
