This publication is the result of two years of student work undertaken at the Amsterdam Academy by students in landscape architecture.
“Schatgraven” or digging for treasure is about fieldwork and analysis – and learning to look in new ways. Students were asked to find subjects of personal interest after site visits, ranging from different smells in the landscape to gradations of neglect and care in the environment.
The results are personal maps and analytical explorations of what was seen and perceived. Through this personal map work students learn to graphically materialize their own thinking process with a combination of complete openness to place and cartographic precision.
