Relating Architecture to Landscape

By Jan Birksted | Go to book overview

Introduction

There is clearly an overlap between this section and the previous one since these articles discuss collaborations at different scales: from small private domestic projects through a public project with tremendous historical memory and international resonance (the landscaping up to the Acropolis), to a project in a large metropolis and finally to a project covering an entire Californian region. But these three articles therefore also cover four different types of collaborations: the collaboration between one architect and one landscape architect (Scharoun and Mattern), between a team of people (an EDAW project), and between a team of planners working on an entire region of California. And then the article about Pikionis discusses a collaboration which is often overlooked: the collaboration between the designer and the manual workers building the design. This is of course where a design can either come to grief or be actually enhanced by the enthusiasm, knowledge and skills of the manual workers themselves: they have the ability to improve a design, correct the designer’s mistakes or sometimes wreck the design through misunderstanding, carelessness or deliberate hostility. There is here again overlap with Part Two: the Maeght Foundation involved near-perfect collaboration between patron, architect, artists, horticulturist and workmen.
