Power of Landscape
The energy transition is in full swing: across the globe, windmills and solar panels are taking over from fossil fuels. But the construction and intervention of these new structures in the landscape is often met with resistance. What if one of the biggest obstacles for this transition is not energy technologies themselves but fear of drastic changes to our living environment?
Power of Landscape examines “energy landscapes” in Europe and the US (Hoover dam, Arizona and Imperial Valley, California) in the present, past and future, exploring the qualitative and emotional significance of these landscapes for residents and users, and bridging for the first time the gap between the world of renewable energy and the world of spatial design. The core of the book’s research stems from work at the Academy of Architecture Amsterdam and Wageningen University by Sven Stremke, Dirk Oudes and Paolo Picchi; additional experts on energy transition and environmental design reflect on their research.
