Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

About two years ago Geoff Manaugh, the editor of BLDGBLOG and the impressive Venue project, curated an exhibit called Landscape Futures: Instruments, Devices and Architectural Inventions at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. 

The exhibit collected projects from architects and designers whose work in one way or another affected the way we perceive landscapes, ranging from studies about the atmospheric preservation of artifacts in NYC museums, to more aggressive topics like climate manipulation as a form of weather warfare.

The exhibit has long since closed but this month Manaugh released a new book of work (borrowing the exhibit's original title) that continues to examine the perception of landscapes, with a new collection of essays on the subject, and supplementary material like a walking tour of dams and debris basins in Los Angeles. 

Landscape Futures is available now from Amazon.
