http://www.mosbach.fr Catherine Mosbach is the founder of Paris-based design firm mosbach paysagiste, which she established in 1987, as well as the magazine Pages Paysages, which she co-founded with Marc Claramunt, Pascale Jacotot and Vincent Tricaud. Catherine is renowned for socially and environmentally responsible work that attests to temporality and continuing change, referring those who interact with these landscapes to relationships with history, culture and the elements. Mosbach’s many projects include the Solutre archaeological park in Saone-et-Loire, Walk Sluice of Saint-Denis, the Botanical Garden of Bordeaux, the other side in Quebec City, Shan Shui at the International Horticultural Exposition in Xian, the Place de la Republic in Paris, Walking Mediterranean Fort Saint Jean in Marseille. Mosbach’s work reveals latencies and hidden layers in the landscape, making the amorphous, ambiguous or slow-moving apparent in real time. The firm’s projects are often close to a decade in the making, with precise relationships to site conditions, rhythms of activity and occupation and seasonal variation. Mosbach is the recipient of the equerre d’argent award with Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa for the Louvre Lens Museum Park in 2013, and Phase Shift Park (Gateway park) in Taichung was honoured in 2014 in the Iconic Concept Award category by the German Design Council, Munich. Catherine was named an officer of the Legion of Honor proposed by the President of the Republic Francois Hollande in 2016, and is a graduate of the Landscape Architecture School of Versailles. She also instructs the course Build with Life: Transformation and Formation: Landscape and Islamic Culture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. https://www.dezeen.com/2020/11/12/mosbach-paysagistes-phase-shifts-park-taichung-taiwan-landscape-architecture/ https://landezine.com/museum-park-louvre-lens-by-mosbach-paysagistes/

As a discipline, landscape architecture has distanced itself from gardening, and landscape architects take pains to distinguish themselves from gardeners or landscapers. Landscape architects tend to imagine gardens from the office, representing plants with drawings or other simulations, whereas gardeners work in the dirt, in real time, planting, pruning, and maintaining. In Overgrown, Raxworthy calls for the integration of landscape architecture and gardening. Each has something to offer the other: Landscape architecture can design beautiful spaces, and gardening can enhance and deepen the beauty of garden environments over time. Growth, says Raxworthy, is the medium of garden development; landscape architects should leave the office and go into the garden in order to know growth in an organic, nonsimulated way. Raxworthy proposes a new practice for working with plant material that he terms “the viridic” (after “the tectonic” in architecture), from the Latin word for green, with its associations of spring and growth. He builds his argument for the viridic through six generously illustrated case studies of gardens that range from “formal” to “informal” approaches—from a sixteenth-century French Renaissance water garden to a Scottish poet-scientist's “marginal” garden, barely differentiated from nature. Raxworthy argues that landscape architectural practice itself needs to be “gardened,” brought back into the field. He offers a “Manifesto for the Viridic” that casts designers and plants as vegetal partners in a renewed practice of landscape gardening.

Yara Falakha, John-Bingham Hall, and Alexandra Lacroix
https://www.larchitect.org/ Today’s conversation is centered around a post-industrial site on the north-eastern edge of Paris, known as Chapelle Charbon, that is soon to become a new public park for the city of Paris. As a former rail depot, the 6.5 hectare (or 16 acre) site will be developed in several phases over the next decade. As part of this process, the design firm Taktyk was commissioned to design a temporary park called La Parc de 12 Saisons or The 12 Seasons Park, that evolved over a three-year period between 2017 and 2020. Around the same time that Taktyk began their work, two other curious site explorers stepped into the scene, driven by an artistic interest in the sonic qualities of the terrain, giving voice to a historic space that had been essentially forgotten about for decades. The story begins with a serendipitous encounter between three people: Sébastien Perfornis of the landscape design firm Taktyk, John Bingham-Hall from the artistic organization Theatrum Mundi and Alexandra LaCroix, director of the opera company MPDA. We met in person in the office of Theatrum Mundi in the 8th arrondissment of Paris at the beginning of March 2020. Taktyk was represented by landscape architect Yara Falaka.

https://islandpress.org/books/schools-heal https://www.larchitect.org/ What would a school look like if it was designed with mental health in mind? Too many public schools look and feel like prisons, designed out of fear of vandalism and truancy. But we know that nurturing environments are better for learning. Research consistently shows that access to nature, big classroom windows, and open campuses reduce stress, anxiety, disorderly conduct, and crime, and improve academic performance. But too few school designers and decision-makers apply this research to create healthy schools. Schools That Heal details the myriad opportunities—from furniture to classroom improvements to whole campus renovations—to make supportive learning environments for our children and teenagers.

Paul and Jack Haden
This is a special episode. This particular episode with Paul & Jack Haden from C2 Collaborative represents the evolution of the podcast. Not only do we have a wonderful conversation with this Father / Son duo on site. But after the podcast we put microphones on both of them and filmed them talking amongst themselves throughout one of the most cutting-edge mixed-use urban communities in the country. Follow along this voyeuristic editing style as they talk about framing, patterns, concepts behind a park, and an impromptu conversation from a resident gathering ingredients for lunch from one of the community gardens on site

As an architect of contemporary architectural design and now working as an artist, my focus is to engage people in a shared experience; capturing an authentic sense of place, context and narrative. I view the integration of Fine Art & Architectural Elements offered through my newest venture, Studio Vlock, as a natural evolution of that vision; one that enables me to design pieces that inspire memorable experiences and create unique environments for social gathering, quiet reflection, and visual delight.

Dr. Ghazal Jafari, Ana María Durán Calisto, and Khensani De Klerk
CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON SPATIAL PRACTICE LABASH 2021 - SUNDAY, APRIL 11th Tonight’s session will begin with three, 10-minute presentations from our panelists: the first by, Dr. Ghazal Jafari, founding director of OPEN SYSTEMS / Landscape Infrastructure Lab, and currently an Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture at University of Virginia; next, a presentation from Khensani de Klerk, an architectural designer and planner from Johannseburg, and co-founder and director of Matri-Archi(tecture); and lastly, a presentation by Ana María Durán Calisto, co-founder of Estudio A0, a lecturer at Yale University Architecture, and doctoral candidate at UCLA. These conversations will deal with theoretical questions that pertain to landscape architecture and other spatial disciplines -- engaging with large, complex issues of ethics and justice, along with the specificity that these terms assume in various cultural contexts. Our panelists bring a wealth of relevant experience and knowledge, stemming from their practices in architecture, landscape architecture, planning, activism, and academia. Additionally, these spatial practitioners work in three regions that are traditionally underrepresented and under-engaged in landscape architectural curriculums. Following the panelists’ presentations, we will convene for a discussion moderated by our two organizers: Jihany Hassun and Vanessa Dikuyama.

Wilks Family Director, Ian L. McHarg Center Billy Fleming is the Wilks Family Director of the Ian L. McHarg Center in the Weitzman School of Design, a senior fellow with Data for Progress, and co-director of the "climate + community project." His fellowship with Data for Progress has focused on the built environment impacts of climate change, and resulted most prominently in the publication of low-carbon public housing policy briefs tied to the “Green New Deal for Public Housing Act” introduced in 2019. In his role at the McHarg Center, Billy is co-editor of the forthcoming book An Adaptation Blueprint (Island Press, 2020), co-editor and co-curator of the book and now internationally-traveling exhibit Design With Nature Now (Lincoln, 2019), and author of the forthcoming Drowning America: The Nature and Politics of Adaptation (Penn Press, expected 2021). Billy is also the lead author of the recently published and widely acclaimed “The 2100 Project: An Atlas for the Green New Deal.” He is also a co-author of the Indivisible Guide (2016). Along with Daniel Aldana Cohen, Billy co-directs the climate + community project (ccp), which works to connect the demands of the climate justice movement to the policy development process. ccp aim to do this by developing new, investment-forward public policy proposals under the framework of the Decade of the Green New Deal that target the intersection of climate justice and the built environment. Its focus has been on foregrounding the role of public housing, public schools, public transportation, public power, public land, and public works in local, state, national, and international climate policy discourse. This work has already resulted in applied policy research and model legislation in the housing, schools, transportation, and electricity sectors, filling a critical gap between the demands of the climate justice movement, the appetite for substantial new policy content from sitting legislators, and the desire of a rising generation of scholars to contribute to their work (including Olufemi Taiwo, Akira Drake Rodridguez, Yonah Freemark, Thea Riofrancos, and Shalanda Baker). His writing on climate, disaster, and design has also been published in The Guardian, The Atlantic, CityLab, Dissent Magazine, Houston Chronicle, Jacobin, Places Journal, and Science for the People Magazine, and he’s frequently asked to weigh in on the infrastructure and built environment implications of climate change, as well as candidate and congressional climate plans, by major climate reporters and congressional staff. His research has been supported by grants from the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy, Pew Center for Arts and Heritage, William Penn Foundation,Summit Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Hewlett Foundation, and by a variety of sponsors in the design and building industry. Prior to joining Penn, he worked as a landscape architect, city planner, organizer, and, later, in the Obama Administration’s White House Domestic Policy Council. He holds a bachelor of landscape architecture (University of Arkansas), master of community and regional planning (University of Texas), and a doctorate of city and regional planning (University of Pennsylvania).

https://www.larchitect.org/ A Low-Brow, Crass Approach to Plant Ecology & Evolution as muttered by a Misanthropic Chicago Italian. Amidst mild profanity and general irreverence, we examine plant life (the base of Earth's food chain) and the nature of the rocks and soil they grow on, as well as the evolutionary adaptations that enable them to do what they do. The goal of "Crime Pays But Botany Doesn't" is to both educate people as well as light the fire of curiosity on their ass, hopefully inspiring them to go outside and observe and question the living world around them. Thanks for reading. Have a great day and go fuck yourself.
