Dynamic Geographies, W’s new monograph by Barbara, was just named one of the best books of 2021 by the national ASLA’s blog, The Dirt! Dynamic Geographies is focused on an argument that landscapes are too often designed to be static, and they should actually be designed as dynamic spaces with an integration of the complex systems that use non-anthropogenic forces for adaptation. A better way to design at various time scales involves rethinking management and maintenance and allows “different flows and rates of change for different species.” W designs landscapes that welcome these processes, and maintenance should aim to yield diverse and sustaining places.
