DESCOMBES. Treib, Marc
Oro Editions 2019
SKU: S01883

In our current era, the concern for the planet as a whole, its dwindling resources, the despoiling of its air, water, and land, and an exploding population have skewed the profession’s focus toward sustainability, ecology, resilience, and other related concerns. In the process, the social role played by landscape architecture has been lessened, if not forgotten, and the role of form, space, composition, and materials—that is to say the aesthetic dimension of landscape design—has become a distant concern. Descombes’s practice strikes that vital balance between effective environmental performance and the ethical creation of beauty. Instead of favoring one pursuit over the other, or relying on a delimiting specialization, he works in a way that may be justifiably regarded as both/and rather than either/or – a comprehensive vision that weds nature and culture, landscape and architecture, people and milieu.
