Modern Landscape Architecture: A Critical Review (The MIT Press, 1993) edited by Marc Treib contains 22 essays on modernism in landscape architecture. The contributions are by Peirce Lewis, Catherine Howett, James C. Rose, Garrett Eckbo, Daniel U. Kiley, Dorothée Imbert, Fletcher Steele, Thornbjörn Andersson, John Dixon Hunt, Lance M. Neckar, Christopher Tunnard, Michael Laurie, Reuben M. Rainey, Gregg Bleam, Peter Walker and Martha Schwartz.
These twenty-two essays provide a rich forum for assessing the tenets, accomplishments, and limits of modernism in landscape architecture, and for formulating ideas about possible directions for the future of the discipline. Modern Landscape Architecture brings together seminal articles from the 1930s and 1940s by Garrett Eckbo, Dan Kiley, James Rose, Fletcher Steele, and Christopher Tunnard, while contemporary writers and designers such as Pierce Lewis, Catherine Howett, John Dixon Hunt, Peter Walker, and Martha Schwartz examine the historical and cultural framework within which modern landscape designers have worked.
