Sigita Simona PapIauskaite
I see landscape architecture practice as a chance to sensitize and improve our culture of sharing urban and natural environments. The essential focus of my work lies in the marriage of different disciplines aimed at helping to mitigate environmental risks and increase life quality in cities. I believe that the boundaries of spatial design can and should be expanded through encouraged collaborations between architects, real estate developers, politicians, citizens, artists, scientists, and other actors aspiring to create healthy inspiring spaces.
EXPEDITION ON THE EDGE
"The expedition team left in the autumn of 2014, commissioned by the Provincial Advisor on Spatial Quality, on an expedition to the city edges of the Zuidvleugel in South Holland. During two intensive expedition blocks of four days and nights each, they explored the habitat of the city peripheries. They studied the experience and use of these vast areas on the spot, observing the behavior and way of life of the imposed urbanity within the natural habitats."
This expedition resulted in a series of diaries, photos, recordings, sketches, analytical maps and other research material analysing the condition of the edge between nature and urban settlements.
