Out now: Topos 82, About Landscape
All around the world people associate something different with the term landscape. However, it is man who shapes landscapes all over the globe, often changing them irrevocably, as in the case of oil sands extraction in Canada, the mining of ore in Papua or large-scale afforestation in China. The landscape of the Kimberley in Australia, where Aboriginal peoples live as one with nature, is under threat of being plundered for natural gas deposits. In addition to these topics, this issue of Topos also details projects in which people have contributed to the conservation of our cultural landscapes, as in the rice terraces in Japan, and projects that were designed by exploiting the huge potential offered by the natural landscape, like at Desert Rock Park in India.
