The Incas inherited an architectural legacy from Tiwanaku, founded in the second century B. C. in present day Bolivia. The capital of the Inca empire, Cuzco, still contains many fine examples of Inca architecture, although many walls of Inca masonry have been incorporated into Spanish Colonial structures. The famous royal estate of Machu Picchu is a surviving example of Inca architecture. The Incas also developed an extensive road system spanning most of the western length of the continent.

|The Art of Survival: Recovering Landscape Architecture Images Publishing Group Kongjian Y. |
It provides a rich coverage of the major paradigms and trends that influenced the thoughts and practice of landscape architecture in China at the end of the 20' th century. This book is largely the result of the efforts and enthusiasm of the landscape architects of Turenscape and the Graduate School of Landscape Architecture of Peking University, and presents a number of projects, texts, and essays by pioneering landscape architect, Kongjian Yu. Professor Yu describes modern China as having both an identity and an ecological crisis. He is determined to create an appropriately modern and suitably Chinese approach in his writings, and in his projects, addressing issues such as the sheer enormity of the scale and speed of social transformation in China, which has not been encountered in the West. The Art of Survival: Recovering Landscape Architecture is encyclopedic in its coverage of the antecedents of the ideal paradise or Shangri-La, so beautifully expressed in Chinese mythology as the land of peach blossoms. It focuses on the origins of landscape architecture in China, establishing bridges between the art of survival and land stewardship, and explores the challenges and opportunities for landscape architecture in the new era. This book makes it possible to follow Professor Yu' s belief that the challenge for landscape architecture is to recover its role as an art of survival.
