Wasting Land in Urban AmericaBook - 2006
Our cities are beginning to redevelop old toxic waste sites-places Alan Berger has coined "drosscapes." Drosscape is your guide to this vast, largely ignored field of waste landscapes. Landscape architects must learn to accommodate these wastelands along with the more traditional challenges of site and construction, and thus require a radical reconceptualization about landscape before potential solutions can be effectively addressed or devised. Ten cities are examined both visually and analytically through the use of aerial photography and geospatially derived maps, charts and graphs.
