GROUND UP Journal - PROCESS

GROUND UP is the ASLA award-winning annual publication of the Department of Landscape Architecture + Environmental Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. For our sixth issue, we seek contributors to explore PROCESS in all of its manifestations. As we investigate this theme, so embedded in our discipline, we invite others to expand its potential. PROCESS is a narrative of construction, the path from parti to product. With its successions, erasures, modifications and shifting edges, the term speaks to a present in flux. PROCESS describes modes of formation deciphered through sedimentary strata. It is a text, a feast. It is time travel, geomorphic weathering, a Matryoshka doll -- opening inward and outward to new and hidden possibilities. GROUND UP seeks printable media up to 2,500 words long with accompanying graphics. Shorter entries of 500-1,000 words are highly encouraged, as are design proposals, speculative or built. We welcome interdisciplinary research and analysis, novel forms of written and artistic expression, and student work of all kinds, as well as video and audio submissions for the journal’s online component. Submissions are open until January 4th, 2017. To contribute, email us at groundupjournal@gmail.com and include "Issue 06 Call for Submissions" in the subject line.
