Embodied Landscape, a project seeking to challenge the binary condition forged between humanity and landscape by the interior condition and divisive architectural envelope. The recent declaration of a new planetary era - the anthropocene, or ‘human era’ - simultaneously presents an unprecedented human condition of estrangement from landscapes, and degradation of ‘natural’ landscapes due to anthropogenic climatic shifts. In acknowledging the mutual disadvantages perpetuated by the human/landscape binary, the project seeks to forge a simultaneous awareness of the physical and psychological benefits of landscape experiences, and the current and predicted degradation of the threatened landscape of Lake Beeac.
