Deltas are of great importance to humans all over the world. Densely populated coastal areas where land arises from sea. An amazing gradient where two worlds meet and nature and humans traditionally proliferate. It is the area where one hears, smells and sees the awakening of nature between the ebb – and flood line. It […]

Figure 2: An energy systems diagram of a hypothetical Landscape Machine described by making use of COOS – the key concepts of evolutionary thermodynamics described by Tiezzi. A set of interacting processes, energy and material flows that resemble functions and services performed by a hypothetical landscape machine. Processes, systems and connections among them have a […]

Recent examples of landscape machines envisioned in the design laboratory at Wageningen University have revealed several types that clarify the diversity of living system design. Even while all designs reveal a site-consciousness, they differ in their productive aim and living system methods. production type, example see here waste treatment type, example see here system repair […]

The definition of a landscape machine can principally be explained in threefold: (1) It is a productive landscape that by a design intervention will resolve an existent malfunction in the physical environment. This malfunction may already be explicitly present by negatively affected ecological, societal and economic development. The malfunction may also be artificially introduced in […]
