The marge is a free newsletter of short texts on landscape themes, written roughly every other week. It is written by me, Margot Lystra: historian, theorist, designer, and teacher of landscape architecture, assistant professor at Université de Montréal.

In the marge I write about issues and questions essential to thinking and designing landscapes amidst rapid climatic, social, and cultural change. I share curious items from archives, reflect on conversations had, and share observations from teaching; engaging these as entrees into issues of environment, racial justice, gender equity, and creative practice. 

If you subscribe, these writings will appear in your inbox. I hope you will! Come read and comment. Let’s use this space to hatch some good dialogue about landscape thought and design today…
