Cultural Landscapes: Balancing Nature and Heritage in Preservation Practice

Cultural Landscapes: Balancing Nature and Heritage in Preservation Practice

Preservation has traditionally focused on saving prominent buildings of historical or architectural significance. Preserving cultural landscapes-the combined fabric of the natural and man-made environments-is a relatively new and often misunderstood idea among preservationists, but it is of increasing importance. The essays collected in this volume-case studies that include the Little Tokyo neighborhood in Los Angeles, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and a rural island in Puget Sound-underscore how this approach can be fruitfully applied. Together, they make clear that a cultural landscape perspective can be an essential underpinning for all historic preservation projects.   Contributors: Susan Calafate Boyle, National Park Service; Susan Bug
