Landscape Derivatives

2014-05-06

Landscape Derivatives

Landscape Derivatives is a proposal to design and construct temporary installations as new speculations on the urban and it relationship to landscape that can be considered as;

  •  public spaces that are an intermediate territory between the natural energies from agriculture (landscape) and construction technology of the town/city,
  •  micro-scapes (new conditions for landscape) and not micro-climates (conditioned interiors),
  •  spaces that are generated by three factors: public life, the energy equation, and the digital town/city.
