|The initial encounter between designer and landscape determines the course of the entire design process. Mastering approaches to this encounter therefore precedes every other design skill. The present call seeks experiences, practices, methods, and tools that can help students of landscape architecture and related disciplines to gain this mastery.
Fieldwork in Landscape Architecture: Methods Actions Tools, written by Thomas Oles and Paula Horrigan and forthcoming from Routledge, will find an immediate audience among students and instructors of landscape architecture, where it has no direct equivalent. It will also attract many non-specialist readers with an interest in landscape, design, and the creative process.
We invite contributions from landscape architecture and environmental design educators, practitioners, and students, as well as from other disciplines with fieldwork traditions (geography, anthropology, the natural sciences, the arts). People who work at the intersection of disciplines, or who mix professional, academic, and artistic practice are especially encouraged to propose contributions.
The submission deadline is 31 March 2017.
