Walking and Staying in the Landscape

Call for Papers


The call for paper is open to landscape architects, designers, urban planners, artists, historians, and others – scholars and practitioners – who want to explore or give sense to “walking for staying, stopping for restarting.” We seek to interpret the landscape as a space for passage and reformation; to understand spatial relationships among points, spaces, places, thresholds, and lines; and to explore, understand, observe, and appreciate natural and urban landscapes.

The call is open until December 31st 2021
