Description
When sixteenth- and seventeenth-century engineers physically interacted with waterscapes, they designed bodily and textual assemblages of human and nonhuman things that dissolved notions of human autonomy and its singular ingenuity. This presentation examines wet landscape architecture of the past to outline what we can learn from their eco-ontological lessons today.
