OASE 98 (e-book)

Narrating Urban Landscapes

€ 14,95 order

Uncovering the relevance of narrative methods to today’s architectural practice

> Watch here the website of Oase Journal

OASE 98 explores the historical foundation of the concept of narration in reading and designing the urban landscape, in search of the relevance of narrative methods to today’s practice.

This issue presents a new angle on the work of (landscape) architects and urban planners of the 1960s and 1970s (Edmund Bacon, Kevin Lynch and Jacques Simon) and of practitioners and academics in the field today (Elena Cogato, Christophe Girot, Anke Schmidt and Bas Smets), and sheds light on recent experiments in academia. OASE 98 presents narration as a means with which to reposition design and the designer as a mediator between the expert and the inhabitant, addressing issues such as bodily experience, sociospatial fragmentation and participation.
