The exhibition reexamines the depiction of the horizontal surfaces and material grounds of landscape architecture. It describes a series of foundational techniques used in the representation of the ground, taken from various disciplinary sources. Through the analysis of a series

of maps and plans, we identified eleven graphic systems within four broad themes. These cartographic strategies offer an instrumental

array for describing various conditions: subsurface, temporal, aqueous, and terrestrial. These representational tools are at once analytical and projective, precise

yet speculative. Taken together,

they form a rich symbolic language capable of describing existing and imagined landscapes.
