Landscape as Territory
Date: Wednesday 20 November 2019
Venue: AA Bookshop
The Landscape as Territory Book was awarded an AA fellowship and a Graham Foundation Grant for its edition, writing & publication. Published by Actar.
Landscape as territory addresses the question of how we might think and design landscapes from the perspective of territory. In the process, it draws upon and interweaves theoretical contributions from geography, architecture, landscape, art, history and critical theory, together with reflections on selected cartographic projects produced within the Landscape Urbanism master’s programme at the Architectural Association (AALU) from 2013 to 2018. The cartographic images presented here are not employed as illustrations of theory, but as deviations from or navigations of certain concepts and their historical iterations. It is structured so as to explore the resonances and reverberations between practice and theory. It aims, through this, towards a form of design praxis of landscape.
Join us for a drinks reception with Clara Oloriz introduced by the Director of Landscape Urbanism at the AA Jose Alfredo Ramirez to celebrate the launch of this great new publication.
