The dialectical picturesque

Eric Guibert

An earlier finding of the PhD was that I conceive of buildings, landscapes and the practice itself as gardens, and design like an ecological gardener.
A repertoire of open patterns - spatial instruments and rituals of care - are used to support, guide and express the emergence of the places I am engaged with.
This PRS will present a hypothesis of the theoretical framework that I use to practice - the dialectical wheel - the principles that guide decisions and the gardener iterations, a dynamic process that designs with unpredictability.
This will be analysed through three cases: a landscape, a building, and the practice itself.
In all a polyphonic quality is present, different languages, processes, and fields, are combined.
