Landscape Futures Bundle
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
You can order the pack directly through the PAPress website, where you'll see Augmented Landscapes by Smout Allen, Coupling: Strategies for Infrastructural Opportunism by Lateral Office/InfraNet Lab, and Subnature: Architecture's Other Environments by David Gissen, all highly recommended books here on BLDGBLOG. The authors, of course, are also all exhibiting work in the Landscape Futures exhibition on display now at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno.
From the "retreating villages" and ballistics-inspired optical landscape interventions of Smout Allen to the disguised subway vents, living buildings, and subnatural tracks of dust, bugs, pollution, and other overlooked urban actors of David Gissen's book, by way of a speculative architecture proposed for the rapidly changing landscapes of the Earth's far north, as diagrammed in Coupling, you'll have more than enough ideas to get you through the autumn. Consider picking up a copy of the "Landscape Futures Bundle," and help keep today's architectural discussion interesting.
