Description

'Changescaping, a project by Linda Carroli, engages one of the the Placing Project’s overall objectives to draw out emerging and changing ideas about urban environments and futures with a particular emphasis on the role artists, designers, planners, architects and other urbanists can play as changemakers and in creating alternative futures. In part, that change is about how practice itself is understood. The publication seeks to profile and foreground work happening in the Australian context, as it can seem that Australians aren’t prominently featured in the discussions about DIY urbanism, urban interventions and the like. Changescaping also aims to think beyond categories like ‘DIY urbanism’ and ‘urban intervention’ as a way of potentiating and tracing new trajectories for planning, design and art in the urban environment, as well as cutting across typologies and disciplines.” (http://enablingsuburbs.wordpress.com/changescaping/)
