Landscape as Cult
A changing view
on our nature

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?
