Raffaella Sini Discusses Temporary Gardens as Design Enquiry
December 15, 2020
Raffaella Sini, assistant professor of landscape architecture in the College of Art and Architecture, recently published “The ‘Here and Now Time:’ Temporary Gardens as Design Enquiry” in Landscape Research Record, a publication of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture. The paper proposes a key to reading temporary gardens — by understanding them as artworks and looking at design process by hypothesizing different dimensions of time in space that are neither linear nor cyclical. Raffaella’s research found that temporality in gardens does not simply affect the duration of the physical space of the garden, but it revolutionizes the whole concept and process of designing time into space.
