About the Author

Bradley Cantrell is a landscape architect and scholar whose work focuses on the role of computation and media in environmental and ecological design. He is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture and has held academic appointments at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, The Rhode Island School of Design, and the Louisiana State University Robert Reich School of Landscape Architecture. His work in coastal and riverine landscapes form a series of methodologies that develop modes of modeling, simulation, and embedded computation that express and engage the complexity of overlapping physical, cultural, and economic systems. Adam Mekies is a licensed landscape architect and planner at Design Workshop in Aspen, Colorado, where he leads many of the firm's computational and interactive technologies in the construction of the public and private realm. He received his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from Iowa State University, and has applied his interests in advanced construction modeling and computational technology to design projects across the country and overseas. He is the recipient of multiple ASLA design and research awards for his work in community design and implementation of interactive and parametric technologies.


`Codify is the long-awaited book for landscape architects bridging professional practice with data driven design. Filled with case studies that include scripting and digital analysis, to the implementation of smart algorithms, and custom applications, all leading to new methods of organizing, understanding and quantifying data that allow for smarter, sustainable landscape architecture. This book represents the future of a profession that will be dominated by high quality, automated, readily available remote sensing information and provides direction for how landscapes will be designed, built and managed in the future by both humans and smart applications.' Daniel Tal, Landscape Architect, USA `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.' Chip Sullivan, ASLA, Professor, UC Berkeley, USA 'As Sanford Kwinter once noted, "no computer on earth can match the processing power of even the most simple natural system, be it of water molecules on a warm rock, a rudimentary enzyme system, or the movement of leaves in the wind." And yet, it is compelling to see computational tools and techniques applied to natural and designed systems alike. Codify provides a cogent and richly illustrated view into the current state of such electro-numeric techniques in landscape architecture.' Kiel Moe, Associate Professor of Architecture, Harvard GSD, USA 'Codify offers a definitive framework for the next generation of computational landscape processes - ranging in scope from models and mappings, to material behavior and sensing. The authors deftly reframe the landscape medium as the subject of digital innovation, expanding our definition of the technosphere into new and unforeseen geographical dimensions. At this frontier, ecology, technology, urbanization, and environmental management, collapse into a single sector of human ingenuity and invention currently known as landscape. Codify convincingly argues that Landscape Architecture is uniquely positioned to define this sector of technology, and in the process redefine itself.' Richard L. Hindle, University of California, Berkeley, USA
