- Presents an argument for dynamic landscapes, not static ones, illustrated through 20 years of work at W Architecture and Landscape Architecture
- Time is a key element of landscape design and can be used in different ways as discussed in the following chapters: Invisible geographies, Layered geographies, and Unleashing geographies
- Dynamic landscapes are a part of combatting climate change, and should be a part of every landscape design
Landscapes are forged by many forces and are dynamic, not static. Yet most landscape designs are designed as static; that is, they are designed not to change substantially for 20-50 years. As cities become the dominant living space for humans, allowing non-human forces to contribute to our designs as landscape architects will make for more resilient landscapes and a healthier planet. Making these dynamic landscapes with our non-human partners will require a new landscape aesthetic, changing the public perception of “landscape,” and changing maintenance practices.
seeks to address these perceptions with a series of our projects as examples. The book is divided into three segments of overlapping geographies: Invisible geographies, Layered geographies, and Unleashing geographies.
