Planted Architecture makes a solid argument that the best landscapes don't end at the front door, examining case studies of installations where the line between landscape and dwelling has been successfully erased. Startling solutions to site-specific concerns abound; ferns take the place of traditional exterior sheathing for a house in Paris, while a Greek house is partially subsumed by the landscape and overplanted with drought tolerant grasses and olive trees. Meanwhile, an Icelandic house achieves integration with the landscape by means of rooftop gardens.
