Therapeutic Landscapes

An Evidence-Based Approach to Designing Healing Gardens and Restorative Outdoor Spaces

The single most comprehensive and authoritative guide to designing healing gardens and restorative outdoor spaces
Therapeutic Landscapes focuses critical attention on the design and creation of landscapes that promote health and well-being, emphasizing the importance of evidence-based design to meet the needs of specific patient populations, as well as those of visitors and staff. It presents an overview of healing gardens and therapeutic landscapes from planning to post-occupancy evaluation and offers guidelines on which landscape architects, healthcare administrators, and funders to base their decisions.
Whether the outdoor space is a courtyard, a campus, or a roof garden; whether it is part of an acute care or a residential facility; or whether it serves children, cancer patients, veterans, or the elderly, this comprehensive guide delivers proven approaches to the design of beautiful spaces that reduce stress, encourage emotional equilibrium, support recovery from illness or injury, and help patients regain lost or impaired abilities.
Important features of this wide-ranging and closely detailed resource, include:
* Evidence-based guidelines for designers and other stakeholders in a variety of projects
* Patient-specific strategies covering twelve categories ranging from burn patients and psychiatric patients to hospice and Alzheimer's patients
* Case studies of exemplary gardens that demonstrate best practices and provide inspiration
* Information on participatory design and funding strategies
* Chapters on research, planting and maintenance, horticultural therapy, and sustainability
Therapeutic Landscapes is an indispensable resource for landscape architects, other designers, students taking related courses, and healthcare administrators.
Rezension
"This is an exceptionally well-written, well-researched and well-illustrated book on designing and creating therapeutic landscapes. Rarely before has this topic been so thoroughly documented in one easy-to-read book that provides essential information to landscape architects, garden designers, healthcare workers, therapists and patients." (Linda A. Irvine, Landscapes/Paysages Magazine, OALA, FCSLA, ASLA; Manager, Parks and Open Space Development, City of Markham, Ontario, Canada)
"Taking time to get in tune with your surroundings and learn to love nature has proven a therapeutic process for many, including Naomi Sachs. Sachs is Founding Director of the Therapeutic Landscapes Network, and has been able to translate a personal passion for nature into a new book, co-written by Clare Cooper Marcus, which just came out this week called Therapeutic Landscapes: An Evidence-Based Approach to Designing Healing Gardens and Restorative Outdoor Spaces. The new publication has been long-anticipated and referenced as the "single most comprehensive and authoritative guide to designing healing gardens and restorative outdoor spaces." (naturesacred.org, October 2013)
