This subject provides students with a detailed and critical introduction to the discourses and practices known as ‘landscape urbanism’ that have emerged over the past two decades. It provides a platform for students to investigate the historical and theoretical contexts of the movement, its protagonists, objects and networks, as well as its legacies. Building on the previous semester’s subjects concerning landscape infrastructure, this subject (together with 11184 Landscape Architecture Studio 6: City, for which this subject serves as preparation) considers the relationships between landscape, urbanism, design, and the broader environmental and social contexts with which they engage. It also introduces students to current developments and future potentials beyond ‘landscape urbanism’ that carry the movement’s work into the territorial and planetary spatial scales and geologic timeframes that distinguish design in the era of the Anthropocene.
