THE NEW BOOK: Large-Scale Urban Parks on Post-Industrial Sites in Contemporary Urban Landscape Conceptions
The new book written by Dr. Mengyixin Li at the Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture entitled, “Large-Scale Urban Parks on Post-Industrial Sites in Contemporary Urban Landscape Conceptions” is published by MDPI. The publication is open access and available to read here.
The theme is expounded in the fields of landscape architecture, landscape ecology and urban planning. A worldwide perspective is created so as to conduct cross-cultural research on the theories and practices of large-scale urban parks in North America, Germany and China.
Through the scientific approach of Critical Rationalism, three design paradigms of parks in different conceptions of contemporary urban landscapes are formulated based on quantitative and qualitative analysis, which are classified as Organic Parks, Structuralistic Parks and Shan-Shui Parks.
In critical thinking, the book involving analysis about urban parks, green open spaces, green infrastructure and post-industrial landscapes will have international appeal.
