Keywords 10/7

  • installation – a three dimensional work that is site specific and meant to transform the perception of a space, generally considered a temporary action with little to no environmental impact
  • intervention –  a three dimensional work that is site specific and meant to transform the perception of a space, considered to have a longer lifespan than an installation and could make a greater impact on the environment
  • operations – strategies employed in a project which embody a relationship between architecture and the landscape (as defined in Pollak and Berrizbeitia’s Inside/Outside)
      • reciprocity – aims to subvert the predominant view of landscape as only the ground on which architecture rests
      • materiality – critiques the tradition of landscape and architecture in purely visual terms
      • threshold – rejects the reduction of transition from space to space to merely that of an abrupt crossing
      • insertion – aims to draw connections between a space and its surroundings
      • infrastructure – places architecture and landscape as a place where natural or true ground no longer exists
  • site specific characteristics – features or qualities belonging to a place which give it a unique identity
