About the Book

**This title was originally published in 2001. The version published in 2011 is a PB reprint of the original HB**

Manufactured Sites focuses on the legacy of industrial production and pollutants on the contemporary landscape and their influence on new scientific research, innovative site technologies and progressive site design. It presents innovative environmental, engineering and design approaches along with ongoing research and built projects of international significance. Contributions range from innovative scientific engineering research from industry and federal agencies to contemporary international and regional professional reclamation and redevelopment projects such as the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia and the A.G. Thyssen steelworks and blast furnace planning in Germany's Ruhr region.


'Provide(s) a thoughtful overview of current approaches and issues that include numerous case studies of actual sites.' - Landscape Architecture

'Manufactured Sites stands as an important contribution to the field of brownfield reclamation, both for documenting inventive work on a range of professional fronts and for its successful attempts to broaden the cultural and critical discussions surrounding brownfield re-use. - Land Forum

' This volume offers an excellant overview of the environmental laws that govern site clean up as well as case studies in landscape restoration. - Architectural Record

'This is a valuable feature of the book, the responses offer a critique of the technologies and projects described and are far sighted about the potential benefits of the new methods, particularly if they can provide the inspirational basis for new design approaches.' Landscape Research
