Forest, Body, City, Flow. Landscapes of Care
Yue Mao, Naomi van Dijck, Radha Smith – NOMAOS (eds.)

This publication is a unique inclusive attempt to bring together institutions and independent practitioners in architecture and culture with a hybrid format. You will be wandering through fifteen practices which unfold the landscapes of care in different directions. These ideas are collated by the editor of this publication, research collective Nomaos, with support from architecture research practice dpr-barcelona. Thirteen of the contributors and the editor are among the 27 selected ideas of Future Architecture Platform in 2021, with two guest contributors to add more complexity and criticality into the discourse.

This publication is a commission from Future Architecture Platform, a well-balanced ecosystem of European cultural players in architecture who perform specific roles within a complex European architecture program. It connects multi-disciplinary emerging talents to high profile institutions like museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials, and festivals. It provides talented conceptual thinkers and practitioners in architecture with opportunities to speak up - and be seen and heard.

Throughout the book you may notice that landscapes of care do not limit themselves to physical spaces. Although in some cases taken to be forests or rivers, it is in fact the crucial plurality of spaces, activities and relationships that characterises landscapes of care. Forests, bodies, and cities are only a small number of territories, but they represent the varied types of landscapes through which care can flow. We might therefore think of ‘landscapes of care’ as the practice linking different territories and bodies, and the landscape established by their interdependence.

The previous six publications showcasing ideas of Future Architecture Creative Exchange centered around a monolithic, one-word theme. It is fitting that for this final instalment the theme consists of two words and where they overlap. A landscape that we can use to visualise this overlap might be the ecotone.
