Ad-dressing the Landscape: Systematic Variations on Stowe
Architecture & Historic Urban Environments MA graduate, Matei Alexandru, presents an exploration into the formed landscape, the picturesque garden, displaying both a model and drawings. His work explores how the architecture of historic gardens can be used as a cue for the creation of new landscapes.
Matei's displayed model serves as a two-part, speculative landscape calibrating device. The first part of the model forms the measuring visor by which the gardens’ features can be isolated into individual patterns, while the second part forms the calibrating bed, with the latter acting to re-inscribe the new abstract land formation into the picturesque archetype. The accompanying illustrations are the resulting plan drawings of such landscape reinterpretations, which stem from the existing picturesque.
