The Third Landscape
by Juliette Gilson
The Third Landscape is the tangible result of Juliette Gilson’s experiment-driven research project that took place from May 2021 to April 2022. The project emerged from an interest in the port-city of Rotterdam – its landscape and built environment, its roads and omnipresent traffic, trucks, containers, gas stations, parking lots and warehouses. Through urban investigations of transitional spaces, between port and city, transformations of an ever-changing part of society are recorded. Walking and writing are used as a cognitive method that informs and triggers new processes of thinking, researching, making and communicating. Walking means being immersed, drenched in the present condition amongst surrounding elements, through which temporal realities and new narratives are being revealed.
The publication includes contributions by Bart de Baets, René Boer, marjolijn kok and Nino Maissouradze.

*2022 CoLR contains residue from an ongoing investigation into vernacular design culture as it manifests on the streets of Rotterdam and as it links to other design cultures in the elsewhere. The corporate giveaway template (calendar) is considered a valid research surface. Throughout 2021, Mengüç and Balaguer—under the temporary handle Your Company Name—have used casual of field work methodologies to amass qualitative data: long walks documented by smartphone, Whatsapp image dumps, take-away-fueled conversations logged on Etherpad, and chilling IRL and on Zoom.
