Urban design is generally seen as a discipline in between architecture and planning that deals with the design of 3-dimensional public spaces. However, this book argues the “Urban Design” as a way of landscape architecture, explains the parallels between these notions, and discusses the techniques and context that are important for both disciplines. The book gains meaning as it discusses the practice and the theory concurrently.

The book, which would be seen as a handbook for students, intends to execute the relationship and parallels between Urban Design and Landscape architecture through 6 chapters by analyzing the techniques and practices in the disciplines.

Keywords: Book review, Landscape architecture, Urban design
