This book by Bradley Cantrell (Editor), and Adam Mekies (Editor) Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture provides a series of essays that explore what it means to use, modify and create computational tools in a contemporary design environment. Landscape architecture has a long history of innovation in the areas of computation and media, particularly in how the discipline represents, analyses, and constructs complex systems. This curated volume spans academic and professional projects to form a snapshot of digital practices that aim to show how computation is a tool that goes beyond methods of representation and media. The essays are written by leading academics and professionals and the sections examine the role of computational tools in landscape architecture through case studies, historical accounts, theoretical arguments, and nascent propositions.

The book is organized into four sections; syntax, perception, employ, and prospective. The essays are written by leading academics and professionals and the sections examine the role of computational tools in landscape architecture through case studies, historical accounts, theoretical arguments, and nascent propositions.

“Do electronic trees dream of photosynthesis? Artificial intelligence, robots, virtual reality, video games, coding, big data, cybernetic design… This volume is destined to become the bible for landscape architects and environmental designers looking for inspiration on how to integrate technology in every aspect of design from coding and programming to construction administration and post-occupancy evaluation. Within these pages, educators, practitioners, and futurists examine the exciting application and potential for computation to shape the built environment and the direction of landscape architectural education.”, says Chip Sullivan, ASLA, Professor, UC Berkeley, USA while reviewing the book.
