內容簡介top Therapeutic Gardens 簡介 The need for healing gardens is growing at a global scale as research continues to prove their positive effect on a range of physical and mental conditions. To meet the increased demand, designers, landscape architects, and healthcare providers are looking for comprehensive information on how to design a healing garden in a variety of forms. In Therapeutic Gardens, landscape architect Daniel Winterbottom and occupational therapist Amy Wagenfeld present an innovative approach for professionals and students that translates the principles of therapeutic design into practice. Using examples from around the world, the authors demonstrate how these spaces can be designed to support learning, movement, sensory nurturance, reconciliation, and memorialization, as well as improved health and participation. This important book sheds light on how the combined strengths of multiple disciplines can provide the tools to design meaningful and successful landscapes for those in greatest need.
