LANDSCAPE

This summer, in the wake of pandemic isolation, access to outside space is more important than ever before. But successful parkland and landscapes cannot be simply about respite and recreation alone: as climate change intensifies, resilience is equally critical. The projects on the following pages—from the cultivated to the untamed—provide healthy escapes, demonstrate a sensitivity to local conditions, and combat the effects of a warming planet.
