Landscape as territory addresses the question of how we might think and design landscapes from the perspective of territory. In the process, it draws upon and interweaves theoretical contributions from geography, architecture, landscape, art, history and critical theory, together with reflections on selected cartographic projects produced within the Landscape Urbanism master’s programme at the Architectural Association (AALU) from 2013 to 2018. The cartographic images presented here are not employed as illustrations of theory, but as deviations from or navigations of certain concepts and their historical iterations. It is structured so as to explore the resonances and reverberations between practice and theory. It aims, through this, towards a form of design praxis of landscape.
