Summary

The 30th year of Pamphlet Architecture features a landscape architecture practice, a first for this annual publication. London-based Smout Allen presents five projects that respond to the way in which we have augmented landscape through architecture and infrastructure, and manipulated and blurred our perception of what is nature and what is artificial.The series has served as soapbox for notable architects like Steven Holl, Lebbeus Woods, Zaha Hadid and Michael Sorkin.

Author Biography

Mark Smout and Laura Allen have been practicing as Smout Allen since the mid-1990s. Both teach at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
