Scape 17 Landscape Architecture Urbanism
The bulk of this edition is devoted to a dossier on designers who work in the margins of the profession, in areas where “world-class” is not relevant. Traversing the globe, from the slums of Cape Town and degraded farmlands in Kenya, to a refugee camp in Jordan and a Peruvian rainforest, new concepts are of lesser importance where the desire for change is a lot more urgent. Six projects are featured in which the designers are driven by a sense of “loyalty” to our capacity to alter environments and make a spatial difference that matters. Several of them were also invited to talk about these aspirations, including from the landscape architecture firms OKRA, BALJON, and H+N+S.
