Item description for Newscapes: Territories of Complexity by Paola Gregory...
Since the famous competition for the Park La Villette in Paris where the participants included Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman and Gilles Deleuze, the relationship between building and landscape has been dramatically transformed. Concepts such as metamorphosis and interaction, layers and fields are becoming as much a part of architectonic discourse as the practical designs and the realization. Author Paola Gregory examines this interplay between buildings and landscapes present in todays architecture scene, illustrating her analysis with exciting examples including the ecological landscapes of James Wines and Greg Lynn, the virtual environments of Marcos Novak and Nox, buildings by Jean Nouvel and Toyo Ito which actively incorporate passers-by and surroundings by means of new media.
