DESIGNING NATURE AS INFRASTRUCTURE

In November Ed and Mike Dring presented a paper, Landscape of variance: working the gap between design and nature, at the Designing Nature as Infrastructure conference at the Technical University in Munich (TUM).

The paper describes that in design processes that work with the land there are variances, deviations and gaps. It proposes that these moments expose tensions and resistance between what is conceptualised and what is real to reveal complex landscape conditions and new design potentials.

Following the conference the TUM are planning to publish the essays and papers in an edited book.
