Nature has always been the setting for our actions, just as our actions have reciprocally influenced nature. Yet, humankind has seemingly almost outgrown the natural world stage.

This exhibition puts the Romantic experience of nature against the raw reality of cultivation. Landscape architecture is traditionally a historical analysis: a spatial design that strikes the right balance between ecology, biodiversity and culture. But what happens when instead of tackling the landscape horizontally you construct it vertically, from archaeology to satellite? What layers does it reveal and what meanings do we find embedded in the nature around us?
