LAP is a peer-reviewed book series that focuses on design research in the fields of architecture, urbanism and landscape. It seeks to highlight innovative practices worldwide which boldly address the most pressing socio-political, ecological and spatial issues of the contemporary times. It will emphasize work which is developed in cooperation with activists and civil society, various governmental and/or agencies and stakeholders as well as with other experts. The series will pursue a diversity of research practices that occur beyond mainstream sites, assignments and programs. The visual component is explicitly an important and essential foil to textual insights.
