We are pleased to announce the call for submissions for GROUND UP, Issue 07.

For our seventh issue, we’re taking on the theme of CONSEQUENCE, starting with landscape and looking beyond to allied fields. We seek contributors to explore landscapes of consequence, the consequence of landscape, and the attendant responsibilities (or, ‘response-abilities’) of design discourse and practice.

The urgency of recent decades is no longer speculative, and suddenly real. In moments of political and environmental crisis, we are called to define, preserve, and expand the agency of landscape and those who shape it. GROUND UP asks:

Intended or accidental, of what consequence are our interventions in times of urgency? Likewise, what consequences are evident in landscape today–where and for whom?

GROUND UP is the annual publication produced by graduate students of the Landscape Architecture + Environmental Planning program at the University of California, Berkeley.

GROUND UP seeks voices from fields of landscape architecture, architecture, the arts, planning, geography, and beyond. Scholarly, poetic, or artistic, submissions may include, but are not limited to, design proposals (speculative or built), interviews, interdisciplinary research, artistic expression, and student work of all kinds. Written entries of up to 3,000 words with accompanying images are highly encouraged.
