Living Colour presents an innovative vision on the use of planting in outdoor spaces, in relation to the colours of the surroundings. With concept words and atmospheric interpretations, the designer is led through the choice of colour compositions, reflecting the desired atmosphere of a space. Living Colour also visualises the possibilities of colour use within dendrology, based on scientific colour theories, colour effects and colour concepts. The trees and shrubs in the book are ordered according to their specific colour characteristics and decorative value. The species can also all be planted successfully in European and Russian urban areas. Thanks to the good photos and clear species descriptions, (landscape) architects, urban planners and all sector groups who are professionally concerned with the design of outdoor spaces can properly weigh up whether or not a tree species fits with the landscape design.Look inside Order
