New Book on Green Infrastructure


The book “Revising Green Infrastructure: Concepts Between Nature and Design” will be published in December 2014 by Routledge/CRC Press, London. It provides a fresh look at green infrastructure from the perspective of landscape architecture. Contributors come from all corners of the globe and the editors are members of the landscape architecture faculty at the Technological University of Munich, Germany.

I wrote a chapter of this book with colleagues Mery Bingen and Laura Lugo entitled: “The Caribbean Landscape Cyborg: Designing Green Infrastructure for La Parguera, Puerto Rico”. It tries to provide a tropical and Caribbean perspective of contemporary green infrastructure design in a field dominated by temperate-climate projects.
