On Site

Knut Eirik and Kjerstin writes on Appearing and Disappearing landscapes in On Site.

On June 6 the second edition of Landscape Architecture Europe On Site will be presented at the Architekturforum in Zurich.
On Site is the triennial yearbook of European landscape architecture. Produced for the Landscape Architecture Europe Foundation (LAE) and the European Foundation for Landscape Architecture (EFLA), it aims to be the standard, critical review of the state of the art of European landscape architecture.
The first book published in 2006, Fieldwork, explored the tendency in Europe for new urban forms built on former agricultural land to use the patterns and land forms of the former agricultural use. The title, On Site, refers to attitudes to place or locus.

On site presents pioneering projects and strategies in landscape architecture from Berlin to Bordeaux, from Akkarvikoden in Norway to Evora in Portugal. The projects are supplemented by essays on European cartography, the cultural landscape, the history of ideas in landscape architecture, the role of ideal landscapes, urban policies, and the pioneers from Portugal such as Francisco Caldeira Cabral and Gonçalo Ribeiro Telles.
