Landscape in the metropolitan era

de Wit, S. I. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


This lecture re-introduces the notion of super-nature into the metropolitan debate: as an intensified and superior version of nature, deeply embedded in history, culture and technology, and bringing together the architectural and the ecological view of the 20th century. The abundance of nature and natural processes determines its own architectural language, not in the first place an artificial—artistic—reflection of nature, but an artificial reflection of nature, which in itself has become as much artificial as natural.
