Composite Landscapes examines one of landscape architecture’s most recognizable representational forms, the montage view. The volume gathers work  from a select group of influential contemporary artists and a dozen of the world’s leading landscape architects. These composite views reveal practices of photomontage depicting the conceptual, experiential, and temporal dimensions of landscape. Composite Landscapes illustrates the analog origins of a method now rendered ubiquitous through digital means. In revisiting the composite landscape view as a cultural form, Composite Landscapes illuminates the contemporary status of the photographically constructed image for the design disciplines, and beyond.Landscape architects and artists presented:Yves Brunier, Claude Cormier, James Corner, Jan Dibbets, Charles Eliot, Teresa Galí-Izard, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Adriaan Geuze, Booth Grey, Christopher Grubbs/Hargreaves Associates, Gary Hilderbrand, David Hockney, Kenneth Josephson, Kienast Vogt Partners, Anuradha Mathur/Dilip Da Cunha, Valerio Morabito, Eadweard Muybridge, Humphry Repton, Arthur Shurcliff, Ken Smith/Alice Adams, John Stezaker, Stöckli, Kienast & Koeppel, Superstudio, Michael Van Valkenburgh, Richard Weller, Byron Wolfe Ausstellung/Exhibition: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, Massachusetts, 27.6.–2.9.2013
