Landscapes / Paysages – Invitation to Submit for 2018 Spring Issue

09/12/2017

2018 SPRING ISSUE

BREAKING DOWN THE SILOS THROUGH DESIGN

INVITATION TO SUBMIT

 

In October, 2017, Montreal will host the World Design Summit and Congress, positioning itself as an international rendez-vous for professionals of all stripes, who believe that an open vision of design has the potential to improve the world. Many professional congresses will precede the Summit, bringing the “creators and thinkers” from six participating design disciplines to the city, to share ideas and identify common values. The Summit’s overarching goal is to initiate a long overdue movement to “break out of the silos” that separate the professions, and launch global conversations followed by tangible projects.

In the 2018 spring issue of LANDSCAPES|PAYSAGES , we will explore how “Design” is crucial to the betterment of our world, and how landscape architecture can be key to finding interdisciplinary ways to resolve some of the problems that plague our society at the beginning of this new millennia.

To explore more specifically how landscape architecture can positively impact our living environment, Congress planners identified various key themes:

  • Beyond sustainability: creating living places that are sustainable, but also so much more
  • Educating for the future: focusing on the intrinsic values of all landscapes
  • Power of landscapes: influencing everyday lives through landscape design
  • In praise of nature: how trees/plant material improve our lives (climate control, pollution reduction, psychological benefits, etc.)
  • Urbanization and global warming: how urban design can help resolve environmental, social and economic concerns

 

POSSIBLE CONTRIBUTORS

We will issue invitations to contribute to our actual keynote speakers:  Alejandro Aravena, Haruko Tsutsui, Jan Gehl, Dr. Colleen Mercer-Clarke, Dirk Sijmons, Timothy Morton, Nina-Marie Lister.
