GROUND UP: Open Call for Submissions

GROUND UP: Open Call for Submissions

GROUND UP is a new journal print and web publication intended to stimulate thought, discussion, visual exploration and substantive speculation about emerging landscape issues affecting contemporary praxis. Edited and produced by the students of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at University of California Berkeley, along with an advisory board of noted landscape architects and urban theorists and critics, each edition will examine a critical theme arising from the tension between contemporary landscape architecture, ecology and pressing cultural issues. They are announcing an open call for submissions for their inaugural issue, ‘Landscapes of Uncertainty’, which examines the impact of recent radical economic, political and ecological shifts on the landscape. All submittals are to be sent in no later than January 13th. More information on the competition after the break.

With previous models of prediction, projection, and simulacra are now obsolete, demanding new conceptual and spatial frameworks. What will be the character of space that emerges from this instability? How can design tactics initiate succession of under-used space? How do we represent process and temporality over traditional determinism? How long is temporary? Facing uncertainty in the landscape, how do we adjust our way of thinking to move past merely physical proposals to more open-ended operational strategies?

They are  inviting previously unpublished critical articles (of roughly 3000 words), anecdotes, manifestos, photo essays, built or speculative work, mappings, data visualizations, or graphic responses related to the above theme. For more information, please visit their website here.
