Hringvigur | A Time-Lapse Circumnavigation of Iceland

Evan Mather, landscape architect at AHBE Landscape Architects and award-winning filmmaker is looking for funding for his second feature film project – Hringvigur. You may remember Mather’s first feature file – From Sea To Shining Sea, a journey across the USA from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He is currently making preparations for Hringvigur, a time-lapse video and audio collage of this circumnavigation around Iceland. Mather sees the film as “using video to immerse the viewer in a landscape to achieve an experiential quality. The use of time-lapse video compresses the journey into both a manageable length and allows the viewer to observe the dynamics of shifting landscapes.”

April is World Landscape Architecture Month (not related to WLA website), and to celebrate Evan Mather has launched his Kickstarter campaign to fund Hringvigur. Please help out a fellow landscape architect by contributing to make his second film become a reality.

VIDEO | Jeanne Gang, `Expeditions in the Contemporary City`


Recently, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects gave a lecture at Harvard GSD in which she looks at cities and natural systems. An interesting lecture that shows how architecture, landscape and nature and becoming more intertwined within cities.

“Today’s cities must cope with lapsed industrial spaces and inherited infrastructure. Through the lens of some of her firm’s most recent and noteworthy projects, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects (Chicago) will consider how architectural practice might be refocused to help reimagine these territories and initiate transformation, and profess her longstanding interest in the new ways that cultural and science-based aspects of natural systems can be of use in defining the city.” – Harvard GSD
