I listened to one of the recent Terragrams podcasts today by Landscape Historian Marc Trieb, it was excellent and thought provoking as always and as, when I discovered these two years ago, I was surprised that more Landscape Architects and built environment professionals did not know about them. They provide personal insights and a unique format for understanding the work and ideas of many influential, as well as lesser known, but no less interesting people from many aspects of the design world , all of whom have bearing on the design, or even sometimes not designing, but letting well alone! Hosted by Craig Verzone who is appealing for funding and I recommend it as worthwhile cause – listen to one or two and I am sure you will agree that supporting Craig in this voluntary endeavor is of benefit to all of us.
Terragrams is a podcast series disseminating discussions about the landscape. As our societal conscience and appreciation of the landscape heightens, Terragrams provides a wide portal into landscape architecture and the lives and thoughts of the professionals who shape it. The project aims at capturing, distributing and archiving these voices. It is an easily accessible, open audio digital archive aimed at collecting first-hand, face-to-face conversations between and about people in and around the field.
Future guests include Konjian Yu, Marti Franch, Jordi Badia, Tone Lindheim, Sylvia Karres, Joao Ferreira Nunes, Manuel Ruisánchez, Marianne Levinson, Granit Mayslits Kassif & Udi Kassif, Berrie van Elderen & Frits van Loon, Barbara Aronson and Dirk Sijmons.
Terragrams relies exclusively on contributions from people like you. Your support assures that you, your studio, faculty, colleagues and classmates can continue to benefit from forthcoming discussions as well as our growing archive. All donations count.
