Research

Barbara Prezelj's PhD research project explores landscape’s qualitative metrics as they play out within landscape presentations and their appeal to the future. The working hypothesis of her study is that by critically engaging with the dynamics between landscape presentation and reception and by positing experiential/evental aesthetics as central to that process, landscape architecture might regain its political dimension, one that is suited to the contemporary condition of both our social reality and our practice.

Her work sits at the intersection of landscape theory, aesthetics, affect theory and philosophy of mind.
