The Landscape of Practices: Decolonizing landscape architecture

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapterpeer-review


In 2015, a statue of Cecil John Rhodes at the University of Cape Town, the erstwhile patron of the university and Prime Minister of South Africa in the late nineteenth century, became a site for calls by the #RhodesMustFall movement to decolonize the university and its curriculum.[1] An earnest response to the call of #RhodesMustFall to decolonize requires a response at a number of levels—institutional, curricular, disciplinary—but perhaps most importantly personal, since “decolonization [is] primarily … an internal process that has to take place within the mind.”[2]
