Landscape and Memory book. Landscape and Memory is a long book
Landscape and Memory book. One of Time Magazine's Best Books of the YearIn Landscape and. Landscape and Memory is a long book. It is hard not to be impressed by the shear number of pages Simon Schama can put out. And his subject matter - the cultural perception of landscape and its use in national discourses - is one I enjoy. This is an incredibly broad-brush view of the subject, meandering through Lithuanian forests to Bernini's fountains and the gardens at Versaille, then on to Mount Rushmore, to name a small sampling of the locations he grazes.
In landscape planning the emphasis up till now has been predominantly on the preservation of historic values. A shift in attention to the moulding of new landscapes requires focusing on the analysis of elements and forces that underlie the formation of the existing landscapes and also an understanding of their potential for future development.
