The focus of this issue of SPOOL is on the garden as a landscape theatre for the metropolis. In this context, we are looking for two types of contributions:
- papers that take specific cases - e.g. an existing garden that has adopted a new role when their context changed under the influence of metropolitan conditions, or a reflection on a design that successfully operates within a metropolitan context - as an entry for an argument on the role of the garden in the metropolitan condition
- projects an experimental design (proposal), or an artistic expression. The contribution should support critical investigations and promote scholarly discourse on the arts and design culture in the field of the built environment. We are looking for practices and ideas drawn from the fine and other arts and environmental disciplines that have demonstrable relevance for contemporary theory and practice in the spatial design disciplines.
