The Routledge Research Companion to Landscape Architecture considers landscape architecture's increasingly important cultural, aesthetic, and ecological role. The volume reflects topical concerns in theoretical, historical, philosophical, and practice-related research in landscape architecture - research that reflects our relationship with what has traditionally been called `nature'. It does so at a time when questions about the use of global resources and understanding the links between human and non-human worlds are more crucial than ever.

The twenty-five chapters of this edited collection bring together significant positions in current landscape architecture research under five broad themes - History, Sites and Heritage, City and Nature, Ethics and Sustainability, Knowledge and Practice - supplemented with a discussion of landscape architecture education. Prominent as well as up-and-coming contributors from landscape architecture and adjacent fields including Tom Avermaete, Peter Carl, Gareth Doherty, Ottmar Ette, Matthew Gandy, Christophe Girot, Anne Whiston Spirn, Ian H. Thompson and Jane Wolff seek to widen, fuel, and frame critical discussion in this growing area.

A significant contribution to landscape architecture research, this book will be beneficial not only to students and academics in landscape architecture, but also to scholars in related fields such as history, architecture, and social studies.

Ellen Braae has been Professor of Landscape Architecture Theory and Method at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, since 2009 where she heads the research group `Landscape Architecture and Urbanism'. She has been Visiting Professor at AHO, Norway (2010) and TU Delft, the Netherlands (2018). Her research bridges design and humanities with focus on transformation of post-industrial and welfare landscapes. This crossover is partly reflected in her recent book Beauty Redeemed. Recycling Post-Industrial Landscapes (2015), partly in her positions as Chairman of the Danish Art Council | Architecture (2018-2021) and member of the National Independent Research Council for Culture and Communication (2011-2015). Henriette Steiner is Associate Professor at the Section for Landscape Architecture and Planning at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Her research investigates the cultural role and meaning of architecture, cities and landscapes. She is author of the book The Emergence of a Modern City: Golden Age Copenhagen 1800-1850 (2014) and has co-edited six academic volumes, including Architecture and Control (2018). She obtained her PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK, in 2008 and afterwards held a position as Research Associate in the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich in Switzerland for five years.
