Kathryn Gustafson about the In/Visible City

"Landscape is not just a park - it's everything around you”. This reSITE Small Talk with Kathryn Gustafson discusses how making cities healthy is our responsibility. She is an internationally acclaimed landscape architect who is renowned for creating very artistic, sculpture-like landscape forms that enable people to engage in their surroundings, interact with others, perceive how a landscape feels - and why the way it does so - and how their body becomes an integral part of that landscape. In Prague, we met her in the heart of the fastest developing district, Karlin.
