In rural areas with disobedient, impenetrable soil, a strange phenomenon appears: every house has a mound. These are septic systems that do their work above ground. Bridging architecture, landscape architecture, geography, biology and infrastructure, they are a landscape expression of the soil volume required to treat waste: the bigger the house, the bigger the mound.
Gladstone Hotel is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Gladstone Grow Op, a five day exhibition celebrating innovative ideas and conceptual responses to landscape, gardens, art and place making under the theme: culture of landscape. Grow Op 2015 will facilitate a cross-disciplinary forum across a broad range of creative practices within the vibrant setting of Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood. Grow Op, as one of the most intriguing annual exhibitions in Toronto, encourages a wide range of perspectives and dialogues around landscape and place; challenging our understanding of nature and the built environment around us. #GROWOP2015
