Desired Landscapes #3 2020

Sold out

When traveling to new places, we usually hunt for the genuine, the truest. Is there a single story to provide a convenient coherency for a city’s identity? more

While avoiding a call for nostalgia, Desired Landscapes is ever curious about the discontent that stems from the narrative leap affecting contemporary cities: is it possible to connect yesterday to tomorrow and affirm a sense of belonging? Featuring an array of distinct voices reading into a mix of cities: The Doubleness of a Map –––– Map keys, colors and grids explained by book designer Joost Grootens / Venice I Saw You, Now You Can Die –––– Recollections of charm and betrayal, of uprisings and identity loss, in a post-breakup letter to Venice / Laboratory Eden –––– Tamed wilderness. Symbols and myths in the man-made green terrains of Singapore / The City Between Two Worlds –––– An answer to the refugee crisis from the future, a meeting of continents and civilizations in the liminal space of Lampedusa / Affects of Cities –––– The persistent influence of feelings, shaping cities and bodies alike / The Last Kingsland –––– The disappearance of Kingsland Road, an ephemeral mosaic of vital contradictions, in London / Tropicalized Art Deco –––– Concrete outweighs ornaments, while a concealed pool stands as an homage to Le Corbusier, in Mexico City.
