With People in Mind by Rachel Kaplan
Book DescriptionWith 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.
