Criteria in Land Planning and Design
Taylor and Francis
At the present time professionals in land planning and design are struggling with a particularly difficult problem of their discipline - that of selecting data and developing criteria for the purpose of making decisions about the design and utilization of the landscape. Any design problem, from a region to a garden, must have criteria, or standards, on which judgments and actions may be based. It is impossible to design anything well without them, and it will be better if they are reached as a result of an orderly and logical process. My goal in this article is to set forth a method which will give as objective criteria as possible for making design and planning decisions.
