No Landscape

Above, menacing us. We can’t touch it (landscape is always here and there). Erased by the lack of light, becoming a threat when this darkness wraps our bodies too. No depth, flat black. We can’t see it. May be is there, but our eyes float in the nothingness, our steps too.

No Landscape

Beyond

When we neglect natural processes in city design, we not only risk the intensification of natural hazard and the degradation of natural resources, we also forfeit a sense of connection to a larger whole beyond ourselves.

Despite their common interest in landscape, artists, writers, planners, landscape architects, and geographers can never share the same definition of the term, nor will they always reach a full agreement within their own domain. Landscape serves a different purpose for each group, and each profession or discipline is unique in terms of its focus, objectives, scales of analysis, epistemologies, and methodologies. Nevertheless, each would benefit immensely from understanding the others’ conception of landscape.
