I’m doing a study on Intangible Landscapes – the stories and memories connected to landscape. I’m presently looking at how to access these intangibles by applying anthropological fieldwork methods (interviews, participant obeservation, mnemotechnics). However, in due course I want to apply these findings to practical design guidelines – how do we approach design within a landscape that embodies intangible aspects such as specific memories related to an event – without reverting to monuments.
Has anyone read anything interesting relating to these aspects recently? Any thoughts on the subjects?
