PFS Grounded

Grounded

 

Eduard Kögel: Global Acculturation. Urbanism in contemporary China, in Kelty McKinnon (ed.): Grounded. The Work of Phillips Farevaag Smallenberg. Vancouver 2010, S. 183–210.

 

„Grounded provides us a unique portrait of an unusual landscape practice. Built around seven thematic essays by distinguished academics and professionals, the reach and relevance of the book reflect substantial issues that inform much of contemporary practice in planning, urban design and landscape architecture.“ – Peter Jacobs FCSLA, FASLA.

 

„Grounded is the first Canadian book on landscape architecture as it should be practiced. It addresses, with superb examples, the far-reaching aspects of the profession including the ecological, cultural, economic and social realities of each site, thereby creating spaces which we will all enjoy. I recommend it highly.“ – Cornelia Hahn Oberlander O.C., FASLA, FCSLA, BCSLA.

 

„An amazing and fabulous book on PFS has just been published. As much about landscape architecture as PFS, it is a stunning body of Canadian work that we should all be proud of.“ – George F Dark FASLA, FCSLA, OALA.

 

„Studying the variety of public landscapes that PFS has completed over its nearly 20-year history is astounding… Clearly the skill sets of landscape architects are considerably different than those of architects. Learning about and appreciating these differences through the work of PFS… is extremely enlightening.“ – Ian Chodikoff Editor, Canadian Architect.
