New edition of Landscape and Talking Landscape podcast examine specification in the age of climate emergency.

    The Spring edition of Landscape and the latest Talking Landscape podcast examine the link between tackling climate emergency and specification of materials. Biodiversity in the shadow of the Tower of London; a city extension at the Floriade; a new park in Manchester; reimagining the landscape in Galway; and evaluating the carbon impact of tree plantingall demonstrate the power of the landscape architect to have a huge impact on tackling climate emergency. The journal also demonstrates how materials need to change to meet net zero; it goes organic at the Building Centre, and looks at the lessons to be learned from living bridges and floating agriculture in India and Bangladesh. 

    The images below are taken from an article by Sandeep Menon – Revisting indigenous knowledge-based practices – which looks at the way in which living root bridges in India and floating agriculture in Bangladesh provide inspiration for tackling climate emergency.
