For landscape architects:
Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture by Bradley Cantrell and Adam Mekies
Codify is a series of essays that explores what it means to use, modify, and create computational tools in a contemporary design environment.
Essays written by leading academics and professionals provide snapshots of digital practice.
The sections examine the role of computational tools in landscape architecture through historical accounts, theoretical arguments, and potential. Filled with case studies that include scripting and digital analysis, the implementation of smart algorithms, and custom applications, the book leads you to new methods of organizing, understanding and quantifying data that allow for smarter, sustainable landscape architecture.
