Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas is the second issue of NESS.docs, focused on the concepts and terminology coined by Charles Waldheim and the OFU from Harvard GSD on the potentials for landscape as a medium of urban intervention in the specific social, cultural, economic, and ecological contexts of Latin America cities. Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas features more than twenty projects developed by Latin American practices, who also reflected on their work and its ecological and territorial implications. Ness.docs gathers original texts from Latin America Practices as well as essays on different urban specialists' point of view.

The second issue of our monographic series reflects on the project of Landscape as Urbanism in the Americas, lead by Charles Waldheim and the Office for Urbanization at Harvard Graduate School of Design. Curated together with Mercedes Peralta and Jeannette Sordi, NESS.docs 2 explores the potentials for landscape as a medium for urban intervention in the specific contexts of Latin-American cities.

More than twenty Latin American practices are shown and grouped in five different themes: Biological Environments, Resilient Grounds, Performative Systems, Revealed Protocols, and Assembled Natures. Finally, a conversation between Charles Waldheim, Florencia Rodriguez, and Luis Callejas deepens the discussion of our academic curricula, drawing as representation, political spaces, and the general sensitivity around landscape.
