Just arrived in the WLA mailbox is the Autumn edition of Landscape – The Journal of the Landscape Institute. This edition covers the Landscape Institute Awards 2012 and also a few interesting articles about 2016 Olympics Rio masterplan, Remaking Cities and the Highline for London Competition. The section I enjoyed reading was Debate – Should landscape architects be activists?. Landscape is published quarterly by the Landscape Institute.

DutchDFA has been publishing profiles during 2012 and the latest one is of Rietveld Landscape and their project Vacant NL. Landscape architect Ronald Rietveld, together with his brother, economist and philosopher Erik Rietveld, form the driving forces behind Rietveld Landscape. One of their well-known projects is Vacant NL. It’s an appeal to the Dutch government to make the enormous potential of unused buildings owned by state-institutions available for the creative knowledge economy.
