Landworks Sardinia 1-31 May 2015

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.
