Rebecca Krinke and her contributors, Marc Treib, John Beardsley, Michael Singer, Lance Neckar, and Heinrich Hermann, all highly regarded scholars and designers, have produced a pioneering investigation into contemplative landscapes. The essays explore the role of contemplative space in a postmodern world, and examine the impact of nature and culture on the design and interpretation of contemplative landscapes. Through numerous case studies, the authors disclose principles used to create successful contemplative landscapes. Relationships and differences between contemplative and commemorative space are highlighted, as well as the links between contemplative landscapes and restorative landscapes (those landscapes that provide measurable benefit to human health).
