The bulk of this edition is devoted to a dossier on designers who work in the margins of the profession, in areas where “world-class” is not relevant. Traversing the globe, from the slums of Cape Town and degraded farmlands in Kenya, to a refugee camp in Jordan and a Peruvian rainforest, new concepts are of lesser importance where the desire for change is a lot more urgent. Six projects are featured in which the designers are driven by a sense of “loyalty” to our capacity to alter environments and make a spatial difference that matters. Several of them were also invited to talk about these aspirations, including from the landscape architecture firms OKRA, BALJON, and H+N+S.

DOSSIERS

LOYALTY / Vast slums, degraded farmlands, unplanned cities of refugees, a drowning metropolis – where interventions are needed most

This dossier presents six such projects from all over the world and reflects upon them. The nuclear disaster zone of Chernobyl; the vast slums of Cape Town; degraded farmlands in Kenya and Peru; an unplanned city of refugees in Jordan; the drowning metropolis of Mexico City. Under these circumstances, our disciplines behave both differently and ‘as usual’. The share devoted to aesthetics tends to diminish or is totally overshadowed by the more pressing urgencies, forcing a sort of functionalist design that exposes the intention of improving prosperity all the more.

Several of the designers gathered round the (virtual) table to talk about these aspirations, and more particularly about the difficulties and pleasures arising from the overall process and experience: Martin Knuijt (director of OKRA landscape architects), Marie-Laure Hoedemakers (director of BALJON landscape architects) and Josje Hoefsloot (landscape architect at H+N+S).

Landscape architect and teacher Ingrid Duchhart reflects on the projects and write about her experiences in Kenya, where she was active as a landscape architect for several years. Several counterparts in Mexico, Kenya, South Africa and Jordan gave their feedback on how it was to work with designers from abroad.
