By Leon Van Schaik
For architect and educator Leon van Schaik, the way we understand our world is not an abstract consideration, but deeply rooted in physical experience. Our spatial intelligence is inflected by homes and places of work, gardens and the landscapes we have travelled through. In this book, Van Schaik unearths a lineage of landscape and garden ideas that have influenced his thinking. It unfolds as a series of journeys with friends and colleagues through their shared histories in architecture and landscape. The partly autobiographical process explores how every line drawn in our world brings with it a system, demonstrating why an awareness of our own spatial histories is crucial.
