OASE #98: Narrating Landscape
OASE 98 explores the historical foundation of the concept of narration in reading and designing the urban landscape.
Presenting a new angle on the work of landscape architects and urban planners of the 1960s and 1970s (Edmund Bacon, Kevin Lynch and Jacques Simon) and of practitioners and academics in the field today (Elena Cogato, Christophe Girot, Anke Schmidt and Bas Smets), and sheds light on recent experiments in academia.
The issue presents narration as a means with which to reposition design and the designer as a mediator between the expert and the inhabitant, addressing issues such as bodily experience, socio-spatial fragmentation and participation.
Articles include “Rewriting the ‘Zone’: Cinematic Narratives for Postindustrial Landscapes” by Chris Dähne & Janneke van Bergen; “Monuments and Mental Maps: Narrating the City and its Periphery” by Maarten Overdijk; “Of Strangers and Junkyards: Landscape Magazine between Lived Experience and Systems Theory” by Bruno Notteboom, “Narrative Walking as a Research Method: 42 Hours across a Terrain Vague” by Carole Lévesque, and much more.
