LEGIBILITY

LEGIBILITY

Landscape architecture has the ability to bring people into closer communication with the patterns and processes of their built and natural environments. Projects in this section have a specific focus on revealing, enhancing, and distilling phenomena to create legible landscapes.

Stop Making Sense imagines a way to mark the legacy of nuclear waste at the Hanford nuclear facility in Eastern Washington. Urban Loom and Norrebro Plads: A Vital Edge reveals stormwater processes and clarify way finding in a new multi- modal transit hub in Copenhagen, Denmark. Painting Ecological Process works with cycles of drought and flood in Szinda, Zimbabwe to create a landscape inscribed with seasonal changes. Tactile Map Tile utilizes 3D printing technology to build a more inclusive, non-visual method for mapping urban environments. Freeze | Thaw explores chemical state changes and refraction through a physical concept model, and Reading the Elwha annotates environmental history and landscape experience along the Elwha river.
