This book tilts a void in Canadian publishing of critical books on contemporary Canadian landscape architecture and strives to make a difference to the profession, not just to provoke and inspire dialogue within (and about) the profession in Canada, but to promote Canadian landscape architecture in the international arena. its reach is large — Grounded is being sold in book stores across Canada, the USA, and Europe, and is currently being translated by a Chinese publisher for release in China next year. Grounded showcases the full breadth ofthe profession of landscape architecture and argues the import of landscape architecture as a profession in terms of city—buiIding, cultural production and environmental sustainability. Finally, the book is visually stunning, with informative, thoughtful and provocative writing that appeals to both a professional audience and the general public.
