[Sub]stance gives voice to a new generation of young designers emerging from the University of Pennsylvania's famous landscape architecture program.
It is a platform for imaginative and critical discourse and design speculation about the potential role that landscape architecture can have in understanding and changing the world we have created for ourselves – the question asked by [Sub]stance is 'How are designers (in particular landscape architects) engaging with issues of ecology, economy, society and aesthetics in relation to the landscape of the 21st century?'
The University of Pennsylvania's department of Landscape Architecture has a rich history of innovation and leadership in landscape architecture and regional planning – [Sub]stance is an extension of that tradition.
