The World of Landscape Architecture

With this issue Topos marks its 20th anniversary, having now published 80 thematic editions. Just as landscape belongs to a state of constant flux, so too does the profession. With this issue Topos reflects broadly on the theoretical and practical evolution of landscape architecture, with a particular focus on the last 20 years. Academics and practitioners from around the world provide valuable perspectives – from a discussion of the economic and ecological paradigm shift in contemporary practice to analyses of representation and styles. Additional special features: the work of Taktyk, winner of the Topos Landscape Award 2012; and the two Topos Jubilee Award winners -Abalimi Bezekhaya and the National Tourist Routes in Norway.
