MATTER is about revealing the layers that are not always visible.
The 12th issue of GROUND UP will investigate and challenge conceptions of matter as source, process and outcome as reflected in the interdisciplinary field of Landscape Architecture. This discourse engages the intersection of matter as both material and value. MATTER will respond to the convergence of the two.
As designers, artists and creators we must do more than raise issue and concern through alarming narratives– thoughtful selection and analysis of materials, resources, labor, location and methodologies are equally as critical. For this issue we intend to represent projects that suggest landscapes ‘of matter’ and landscapes ‘that matter’ – in composition and in theory. Submissions can include any representational form of design as practice.
In addition, we welcome you to share the call with anyone you think might be a good fit for the journal. Please feel free to pass forward
