Labo S Works 2004-2014
After ten years of research, Labo S is proud to present the book Labo S Works 2004-2014. A landscape perspective on urbanism. The laboratory for urbanism of Ghent University has been operating in the margins of the (urban) landscape by studying real places which go largely unnoticed and examining concrete problems that are rarely debated in the spotlight of the media or academia. Taking the landscape viewpoint as a framework for urbanism, Labo S has formulated an answer to the almost impossible task of grasping, mastering and changing this reality.
Apart from a post-rationalisation of this extensive process of research, this book also aims to transcend the boundaries of its own work, to offer a reflection on the role that landscape as image and as design instrument can play when exploring and understanding the contemporary urban condition.
The volume contains chapters by Pieter Uyttenhove, Michiel Dehaene, Bruno Notteboom, David Peleman en Dagmar Pelger and is edited by Luce Beeckmans and Ana Michelena.
