Landscape Vision Lecture: Public Realm of the Senses: Eelco Hooftman, Landscape Architect
November 20, 2010
Landscape architecture is a visual art defined in part by the representation of nature. Landscape painting was the direct inspiration for the constructed landscape. The digital landscape of the 21st century is about new ways to visualize the landscape and to create a change of scenery. The pixel is our pigment; the computer screen is our canvas.
Hooftman discusses recent projects including the Landscape Master Plan for Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London.
Award winning landscape architect Eelco Hooftman, founding partner of G R O S S. M A X., in Edinburgh, Scotland, questions conventional assumptions about urban spaces, landscape, and nature.
