Nolan Park - Nolan Park - Building 14
Experimental Landings is an exhibition that interrogates how designers assert agency through the representation, organization, and formation of land. “Landings” is thus intended to “activate” a familiar architectural term that recognizes the often binary and dissociated realms of site versus property, ground versus territory. By shifting the term from noun to verb, the exhibition seeks to reposition land as an active agent with a broader context, territory, and community. By exploring its “mediatric” potential a critical project may provoke and highlight land’s intrinsic ability to engage and inform broader socio-political and/or climatological consequences. Understood as an elastic and open-ended framework of consideration this collective exhibition of work will showcase how architecture and landscape experiments across “land” address new definitions of formal practice across several thematics including artificial earths, seeding resilience, imaging ground, and mapping maintenance.
