Call for Submissions: Ground Up 07

GROUND UP is the annual publication produced by graduate students of the Landscape Architecture + Environmental Planning program at the University of California, Berkeley. For our seventh issue, we’re taking on the theme of CONSEQUENCE, starting with landscape and looking beyond to allied fields. We seek contributors to explore landscapes of consequence, the consequence of landscape, and the attendant responsibilities (or, ‘response-abilities’) of design discourse and practice.

The urgency of recent decades is no longer speculative, and suddenly real. In moments of political and environmental crisis, we are called to define, preserve, and expand the agency of landscape and those who shape it. GROUND UP asks:

Intended or accidental, of what consequence are our interventions in times of urgency? Likewise, what consequences are evident in landscape today–where and for whom?

We admire your understanding of landscape architecture as an engaged, political discipline, and believe this theme could be an opportunity to voice those convictions. We’d like to invite you to submit a piece regarding collective narratives of place to the open call for our coming issue.

Submission guidelines: GROUND UP seeks voices from fields of landscape architecture, architecture, the arts, planning, geography, and beyond. Scholarly, poetic, or artistic, submissions may include, but are not limited to, design proposals (speculative or built), interviews, interdisciplinary research, artistic expression, and student work of all kinds, as well as video and audio submissions for the journal’s online component. Written entries of up to 3,000 words with accompanying images are highly encouraged. To contribute, please email us by January 05, 2018, at and include “Issue 07 Call for Submissions” in the subject line.
