Anyone viewing what we call a ''landscape'' from a distance will recognise that it is an artifact, a habitat created by humans as part of our built environment. Designing this realm carefully is a discipline that is taking on increasing importance today. Mutation and Morphosis looks at all the many aspects involved in the collective process of designing and shaping landscapes, from planning to implementation. The model as a tool and the collection as a driving force are illustrated on the basis of an astonishing variety of topics. In theoretical discussions and the examination of detailed dossiers of facts on the ground, a trajectory is traced: from the emergence of new landscapes as a result of climate change to the migration of the wolf to Central Europe, from the impact of invasive plants to the study of geological formation processes. The panorama that unfolds gives us insights into the broad context that landscape architects must consider in their work, exemplified by the outstanding projects realised by VOGT. AUTHORS: Gunther Vogt, who founded Vogt Landscape in 2000, has been Professor for Landscape Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich since 2005 and was awarded the Prix Meret Oppenheim 2012 for his projects and surveys both in landscape architecture and urban development. Thomas Kissling is a Swiss architect. Since 2010 he has been research assistant at the chair of Gunther Vogt at the institute for landscape architecture at the ETH Zurich. 1400 illustrations
