Ambiguous Territory: Architecture, Landscape and the Postnatural Edición Kindle
Ambiguous Territory emerged from a symposium and exhibition held at the University of Michigan in the fall of 2017, and exhibitions at the University of Virginia and Pratt Manhattan Gallery in 2018, and at Ithaca College in 2019. The conversations that arise in this book are inquisitive and critically engaged. They pressure assumptions we routinely make about what constitutes meaningful and principled perspectives in architecture, landscape architecture, and art. Both the texts and the work take on some of the trickiest issues of our time.
-- Excerpt from a foreword to the book by Catherine Ingraham
Professor, Graduate Architecture and Urban Design, Pratt Institute
The works in Ambiguous Territory exist in a creative space, in the moody realm of possibilities. It’s a sphere of design in which solutions (or lack thereof) have yet to settle. That should be a familiar feeling for all creative people, whose daily life may include exploring a way out of a problem without being able to nail down an exact answer. This volume belongs in that territory of ambiguity and curiosity, a place where there is room for musings, laughter, and despair. The projects convey, in different ways, a hope for a better future, but also a sense of not knowing if that future is at all possible.

Kahn Visiting Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Yale University, an endowed professorship, and a principal of the experimental design practice servo, which exhibited and published extensively between 1999 and 2010.
David Salomon is Associate Professor of Art History at Ithaca College where he serves as Coordinator of the Architectural Studies program. David has taught studios and seminars at the Universidad Torcuato DiTella in Buenos Aires, the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, Syracuse University, and the University at Buffalo. His scholarship focuses on everyday environments and aesthetics. He is the author of the book Symmetry: The One and the Many (DiTella, 2018) and co-author of The Architecture of Patterns (Norton, 2010). His research has appeared in the journals Grey Room, Log, Harvard Design Magazine, New Territories, Places, The Journal of Landscape Architecture, LA+, and the Journal of Architectural Education, on topics ranging from the relationship between Land Art and suburbia, Minimal Art and the supermarket, the aesthetic function of infrastructure, and the presence of modern axis mundi in the techno-scientific landscape.
Kathy Velikov is Professor and Associate Dean for Research and Creative Practice at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and Vice-President of ACADIA. She is a licensed architect and founding partner of the practice RVTR, which serves as a platform for exploration and experimentation in the intertwinements between architecture, the environment, technology, and sociopolitics. Her work ranges from prototypes that explore architectural skins which mediate matter, energy, information, space, and atmosphere between bodies and environments, to the investigation of urban infrastructures and territorial practices, using mapping and analysis, speculative design propositions, physical prototyping, exhibitions, and writing. Kathy is a recipient of the Architectural League’s Young Architects Award, the Canadian Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture, and co-author of the book Infra Eco Logi Urbanism (Park Books, 2015). Her work has been awarded and exhibited internationally, and her writing has been published in edited books and journals.
