Kerb 17: Is L.A Dead?

June 23, 2009

Exploring the existence, or rather the eventual extinction, of landscape architecture within urban design and modern architecture.

Provocatively titled, “Is landscape architecture dead?” the new Kerb Journal of Landscape Architecture makes for a compelling read. While you do have to wonder just how “dead” landscape architecture could really be when its principles are now found incorporated into everything from architecture to urban design, the journal nonetheless manages to pack in enough diverse and challenging content to justify the provocation, with contributions from Foreign Office Architects, award-winning UK practice Gross Max, and “bio-artists” Symbiotica, amongst many others. If you can find a copy (try Architext, or Amazon.com), well worth grabbing.
