The Necessity for Ruins
John Brinckerhoff Jackson

The Necessity for Ruins by John Brinckerhoff Jackson taught me to see – really see – the entire man-made landscape. It taught me to understand that historic monuments represent covenants between generations. My reading of this book continues to influence how I see and how I think about landscape at the University of Oklahoma.
