The publication 'Constructing Landscape. Materials, Techniques, Structural Components' is a systematic introduction to technical and constructional open space planning, with all the relevant topics, from the most common materials and surfaces to the construction of open space elements and the use of plants. For landscape architects and architects it is an indispensable guide to correct and professional execution planning as well as to preparing solid and well-thought-out requests for proposal.

'Constructing Landscape. Materials, Techniques, Structural Components'
is divided into two sections, Materials and Surfaces and Building Construction and Building Elements. The first section provides an overview of the various building materials of land-scape architecture and their specific characteristics. It also explains the qualities of surfaces and the different approaches to treating them.
The second section begins with an introductory chapter explaining the principles of statics, the connections of loadbearing elements, and the various approaches to anchoring building components and supporting structures.

The subsequent chapters use drawings and text to present the constructional principles and techniques associated with the various building elements. Each chapter concludes with a collection of sample projects, illustrated with photographs and technical drawings.
