Representation in a Reflective Culture of Landscape Architecture: Observation and Critical Thinking

Daniele Stefàno

Sapienza University of Rome, Italy

Abstract: Representation is more than a way to inform and design; it is a personal opportunity to think, which involves the whole mental and emotional activity. Considering that the interest in representation in the overall education system seems to be declining, the exposition has the intention to reflect on drawing as a tool for observation, interpretation, and critical thinking. All the more so in a period of significant social and environmental changes. Why is representation a unique opportunity to reflect? How does it make landscape architects particular observers of reality?

Key words: landscape architecture, representation, language, critical thinking, teaching
