LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE: FERTILE GROUND FOR FEMINISTS? |

LA 67
In India, gender studies in spatial disciplines, both in theory and practice, have not received considerable attention. It is an important concern, especially if one looks at the character of the workforce in these disciplines, where women, with their strength in numbers and thinking are playing a very crucial role in shaping them. Elinor Scarth while questioning the “ingrained gender constructs” calls for the need to have a more genderinformed and inclusive professional world of landscape architecture.

A growing interest in feminist research in landscape design has been detected in the work of landscape architecture students at Edinburgh College of Art [ECA]. In recent years students at ECA have been critically questioning the position of women in the landscape architecture profession, the prevalence of masculinist methodologies and discourses in the field alongside the role and experiences of women in landscape contexts[1]. These interrogations include an examination of the tools and technologies inherent to landscape architecture, such as maps, master plans, aerial views, drones, and GIS applications, in addition to an attention to the language, vocabulary, and voices foregrounded in professional discourses. In the current global context whereby awareness of compound and intersecting inequalities is growing, students are drawing our attention to the necessity of questioning landscape architecture and the teaching and learning practices of landscape design and theory through inclusive and intersectional feminist lenses.
