The Irish architecture firm DFLA (Dermot Foley Landscape Architects) is known for pushing the boundaries of landscape architecture. While the studio's previous practice has been characterised by detail-oriented observation and spatial intervention, its latest projects, collected in this publication, are devoted to the question of the influence of time. Engagements with issues such as the circular economy and ecology have recently led DFLA to artistic approaches to environmental science. Created in Ireland and beyond, the works speak to themes of perception, craft, neglect, and imperfection.
The book includes both illustrated concepts and realised landscape architecture. It reflects the studio's complex approach and its successes to date.
