Landworks Sardinia is a studio based “operational workshop”, in which participants build environmental and artistic installations under the direction of an established international landscape architect.
The goal of the workshop is to train students in landscape architecture through “on site”, “manual”, “hands-on” and “participatory” activities, such as planting, digging, the building of small artifacts and landscape installations.
The workshop program is configured on an extensive on-site and open air concept, devoted to catalyze and accelerate the reclamation and restoration of neglected sites through making. The participants are asked to physically REACT to the existing CULTURAL-NATURAL ENVIRONMENT through a series of site-specific installations that intervene on the land respectfully and consciously of their natural environment.
In this way, the objective of LandWorks is to demonstrate how landscape can be used as a strategy for the recovery of contemporary territory and how it can contribute to the field of design.
