Description


The difficulty of
reconciling our basic needs with the long history of cultural
landscapes, in all their inherent beauty and sufficiency, has become
clear. With our deep trust in modern technology, in progress and in a
demanding global lifestyle we have become a real threat to our world.
Yet, today the existential and elementary nature of landscapes remains
the bearer of a successful metaphor for "balance". Why not draw--amidst a
truly global crisis--conclusions out of our long history of designed
nature, of places shaped by skilled labor and a quest for pleasure?

Landscape Analogue seeks to stimulate the "Analogue" dimension as a
substantial concept for everyday landscape thinking. In an anthology of
interdisciplinary essays, Landscript 6 stresses the necessity for a
fundamental shift, within the likely framework of a future of restricted
resources, a radically different mobility or "hot" cities.
