Landscape Narrative Through Film

July 23, 2018 Donna Evans 0

Our initial conversations on the relationship between landscape and theater supposed a relationship where film makers relied on landscape being a tool by which to tell their own story. In hindsight, how we discussed this approach supposed a connection where landscape is inferior to the story. Examples that came to mind where landscape could be seen as a background, a scenography, infront of which the activity unfolds. We also considered Nanook of the North, by which in fact the Canadian tundra is seen as a metaphoric personality, probably the antagonist, of the picture’s story. An ancient scene of To Live with Herds includes an extended uninterrupted shot of Logoth, the major character, pointing outside the fanciful geographical capabilities of this

At the night of 9th October 1963 a stone landslide of 9.000.000 mc fell from Monte Toc (Friuli Venezia Giulia, North-east of Italy) to the artificial pouch of Vajont, resulting in a wave that destroyed what she fulfilled. A lot of folks died and 4 villages were involved with irreparable and enormous damage. Since then, the Valley is still the exact same and only few interventions were performed. The Vajont Valley is that the space of void, isn’t the area of escape, of surplus. Is the absence of this existence which permits a process of involuntary memory who permits to remember what happened that evening. The absence of the S.Martino Church allows us to understand what happened and if we

Constitution Square Warsaw

May 19, 2017 Donna Evans 0

As an effect of the Treaty of Versailles (1918), Warsaw was re-established as the capital city of the current Polish nation-state. Styles selected for public and private commissions during the 1920s and 1930s range from historical to avant garde. The devastating impact of WW II on Warsaw means Warsaw is in large measure a city that is postwar as an estimated 85% of the city was destroyed. The rebuilding efforts encompassed both new construction and historical reconstruction. The architectural endeavors of the Socialist Realist period (1949-1956) provide powerful examples of architecture serving the state-imposed cultural policy first developed in the Soviet Union and after executed across the Eastern Bloc. Constitution Square is unique among Warsaw’s many squares in that its

Yellow Revolution

January 4, 2017 Donna Evans 0

The Green Revolution of the 1950s was an anthropocentric approach to dialogue with all the environment. The Yellow Revolution must be a request for cooperation to nature from a new perception, a humble approach, understanding its processes and making our needs harmonious with them through technology and preparation. Our challenge is highlighted by the Yellow Revolution as landscapers on the scale of the urban landscape as agents of change that redefine the design procedure of urban systems. These need to be transformed into integrated systems in the landscape, they can’t remain a being object in the centre of the land, a parasite of these landscapes. The thing-city formed by disconnected bits must be transformed into an integral system of systems

Urban Landscape

Urban ecosystems are towns, the cities, and the urban strips or greenery built to link people to the natural environment. This can be the increase in the population that is urban as well as the supporting built infrastructure has changed on both urban surroundings as well as places which encompass areas that are urban. Included in these are semi or ‘peri-urban’ settings that fringe cities in addition to natural and agricultural landscapes. The urban landscape can be viewed both as a series of structures and edifices more or less organised by human action and as a panorama of social and cultural histories framing our present and inscribing our past. Seen in this way, ‘….the conurbation becomes one huge archaeological site
