Transformative Ground: A Field Guide to the Post-Industrial Landscape evaluates how ‘designed landscapes can reflect shifting cultural attitudes toward nature and society, with the power to communicate those values through design’ (Mclean 2019 p15). Focused on post-industrial sites, the study explores how this context opened up a new territorial ground for environmental design, allowing environmental design to advance new theoretical and strategic frameworks. Configured as a useful field guide, the book provides critical purchase on new concepts that enable design to work with the potentials of sites as transformative grounds for society and nature.
