Kerb 19 include a collection of broad, intersecting ideas accumulated in a search for new approaches to landscape. The contributions in this issue, collected into chapters Neo-Natures, Beyond and Synthesis, demonstrate the importance of the role of landscape architecture in physicalising a change in our association with nature.
By considering new paradigms, we have the opportunity to acknowledge the limiations of our current trajectory and encourage a new approach to practice.
This issue includes contributions from R&Sie(n), Teresa Moller, Paisajes Emergentes, Christian Groothuizen, Daan Roosegaarde, Rachel Armstrong, Magnus Larsson, David Gissen and Liam Young among many others.
About Kerb: Kerb is an annual cross-disciplinary design journal produced through the Department of Landscape Architecture at RMIT University School of Architecture and Urban Design. The journal aims to draw its themes from issues pertinent to contemporary landscape architectural discourse, however it enthusiastically supports many contributions from outside the discipline.
