A Look Inside

Contributors from a variety of disciplines weigh in on the state of contemporary landscape architecture and its visual representation.
Main Description
This book examines forms of 'land measurement', primarily through documentary and essay films of the past 10 years. It investigates the meaning of landscape for contemporary society through phenomenological film analysis and makes an open plea for a complex view of the landscape of today and its visual representation.
