Landspace // Making Sense

A landscape is not simply the scenery that surrounds

us. It is framed or enclosed, much like we do when

we take a photograph or when we design a garden.

This framing is not a purely physical, but also a

cultural and perhaps even a very personal activity as

well. When thinking of the term landscape some of

us will imagine a park-like setting, while others may

envisage a mountain landscape or even a seascape.

The term landscape, as Simon Schama

(amongst others) has pointed out in his book

Landscape and Memory was derived in the 15th

century from the Dutch ‘landschap’, used to signify

the genre of landscape painting. The etymological

origins of the word landscape, writes J.B. Jackson

in his book Discovering the vernacular landscape,

date back to the 5th century words ‘landscipe’ or

‘landscaef’, which referred to ‘a composition of

man-made spaces on the land’.

The Magazine project is intended as an exercise

for students in (re)presenting their artistic output.

It turned out to be more than a mere representation

of previous work. LANDSPACE is a compilation of

five new and full-blown projects. We are proud and

happy to share these with a wider audience!

Bachelor Interior Architecture &

Furniture Design , Royal Academy

of Art, The Hague

As students and tutors of the Bachelor

Interior Architecture & Furniture Design at the Royal

Academy of Art The Hague we are used to work with

and in space, in the broadest sense. Landscape, the

departmental year theme for study year 2017 – 2018,

took our third year students to different locations

including natural reserves and industrial sites. This

physical exploration of landscape brought along

atheoretical and etymological investigation too.

Although space as a concept at first appears to

be a neighbor to landscape, space is actually quite

the opposite as it is unconstrained by boundaries.

The title of this magazine, Landspace then refers

to the students’ aim to widen the borders of the

much-defined concept of landscape.

In OBJECT 651 landscape is given another

dimension: time – past, present and future. In

SAVED SKIN the outside world has become

inhabitable, necessitating a complete life indoors.

MAKING SENSE introduces movement and touch

as an added sense to sight in exploring the – in this

case – urban landscape. HIDDEN CITY offers us

a look at well-known places through other peoples’

eyes and OUTCAST shows how nature refuses

to be controlled, despite all our human meddling.

Speaking of which: this magazine was produced

environment-friendly in cooperation with Zwaan
