Hybrid and mixed media create a huge variety of diagramming and drawing options for landscape representation. From Photoshop mixed with digital maps, to hand drawings overlaid with photos and modelling combined with sketches, the possibilities are endless.
In this book, Amoroso curates over 20 leading voices from around the world to showcase the best in contemporary hybrid design. With over 200 colour images from talented landscape architeture students, this book will explore the options, methods and choices to show the innovative approaches that are offered to students and practitioners of landscape architecture.
With worked examples in the chapters and downloadable images suitable for class use, this is an essential book for visual communication and design studios.
