Let’s celebrate the World Landscape Architecture Month

LANDSCAPES IN TRANSITIONS
is the topic of this year World Landscape Architecture Month. It is also the topic IFLA World Congress in Cape Town, South Africa!

How?
Easy! We are interested in photographs and videos that show LANDSCAPES IN TRANSITIONS of everyday life. We are looking for informal and spontaneous landscapes in transitions made by communities or individuals which show how they deal with a changing world. Here is a text that may inspire you.
All landscapes are in various states of Transition, being changed by various forces and processes over time. Humankind inherited a world of natural processes and forces which created the landscapes that people first inhabited. Through dynamic interaction people have altered their environment by cultural practices which have in turn themselves been fundamentally shaped by the particularities of that environment. Three often referred to categories of landscape which arise from the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment are natural-, cultural- and urban landscapes.”
