Lecture: Georges Descombes at Landezine Live

Georges Descombes is a renowned Swiss landscape architect. At the third Landezine LIVE event, titled ‘Read/Write Landscape’ he presented his poetic project Renaturalisation of River l’Aire near Geneva that offers a practical example of how to deepen our thinking about the environment and our role in changing it. To a question “What is idle place?” Descombes answeres “A place that you love enough to maintain it”. He compares his design approach to the river l’Aire to writing in a Proustian manner; it happens between what is felt and what is real. Recorded on 13.February 2018 in The Old Power Station in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
