Posted by Jason King at The sum total of this approach and these solutions are grounded in the view, from Corner, that “the projection of new possibilities for future urbanisms must derive less from an understanding of form and more from an understanding of process – how things work in space and time. The power of this essay, removed from the context of the debate over ‘urbanisms’ is that we need to develop a different, more expanded set of values in design and planning that will are response to a true accounting of the complexity of cities, whatever your ideological leanings.
Terra Fluxus Reading the Landscape: The concept and imagery associated just with the term ‘terra fluxus’ is powerful, and encapsulates what I consider a new methodological paradigm for landscape architecture which is the lens in which i tend to read and incorporate LU theory that gives prominence to process while retaining the role of design.
In this view, the role of ‘urbanism’ is understood as the study of urban systems and not the development of solutions – providing an understanding and not a blueprint.
