[LINK] "Artificial Rivers"

In a recent post, Landscape+Urbanism discussed how urban planners in London and especially Boston used landscaping--in Boston's case, land reclamation--as an integral method of urban planning. In Boston's case, the effort was apparently quite successful: "While it is easy to consider this an 'extension of nature' it is clear this is a constructed urban landscape, and that after time it is hard to see this historical ecology without some digging - as it is perceived as nature."

Go, read. I can't do justice to the maps and pictures of links here, so, go read the original.
