GROUND UP is an annual print and web publication created by students in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. It is intended to stimulate thought, discussion, visual exploration and substantive speculation about emerging landscape issues affecting contemporary praxis. Each edition will examine a critical theme arising from the tension between contemporary landscape architecture, ecology and pressing cultural issues. The publication is intended as a discursive platform to explore concepts grounded in local issues with global relevance. Guided by the breadth of interests of our readers and collaborators, we aim to cultivate action through this discourse. We operate on an open call with invited entries from academics, practitioners, students, designers, scientists, and activists. Take part!
