Walkscapes: Walking as an Aesthetic Practice

Walkscapes deals with strolling as an architecture of landscape. Walking as an autonomous form of art, a primary act in the symbolic transformation of the territory, an aesthetic instrument of knowledge and a physical transformation of the 'negotiated' space, which is converted into an urban intervention. From primitive nomadism to Dada and Surrealism, from the Lettrist to the Situationist International, and from Minimalism to Land Art, this book narrates the perception of landscape through a history of the traversed city.

Review: Walkscapes. El andar como práctica estética

User Review  - Joe - Goodreads

I ended up copying down at least 20% of this book word for word. It's the kind of book you write, and it is so rich with ideas, you spend the next 20 years traveling the world, explaining and expounding. Read full review
