Call for Contributions for LANDSCAPES|PAYSAGES Winter Issue
The winter 2017 issue of LANDSCAPES| PAYSAGES explores the notion of the “novel” as seen through the articulation of landscape invention.
With a rich history of collaboration among professions, Landscape Architecture has engaged with novel means of site surveying, data acquisition, diversity studies, planning techniques and a myriad of other inventive ideas that have evolved the field of study, to the present.
In this issue of LANDSCAPES | PAYSAGES, we want to house inventive ideas and techniques, from the past, the present – and the future. What novel techniques are being implemented in your daily practice? What inventions will have an impact on the trajectory of the practice of Landscape Architecture? What novel approaches to Landscape Architecture never materialized? Learn more...
