Last copies, don't miss this wonder! Astonishing release. Edition of 300. White Marbled Vinyl LP with a photo book of 12 analog large-format photographs of the glacier in winter and summer. Concept by Ludwig Berger. Rapid ice melt has been profoundly shaping the alpine region in recent years. It has become an omnipresent and tangible phenomenon, and an iconic symbol of ongoing climate change. Over the past three years, the Chair of Landscape Architecture of Professor Christophe Girot and architecture students of ETH Zurich have been documenting the melting landscapes of the Morteratsch Glacier region, using underwater and self made contact microphones, as well as large- and medium- format analog photography. The sounds of the moving ice mass contrast with the eerie silence of the black and white pictures. The selection of works in this publication turn the evanescent beauty of the glacier into a strong sensory experience; they thus become meaningful witnesses of the rapid changes to come
in the alpine landscape." – Christophe Girot

"Melting Landscapes is a success on all levels: concept, execution, presentation and sound. […]  The Institute of Landscape Architecture is here to remind us of this potential catastrophe, inviting us to appreciate the value of ecological balance, and to fight for its preservation." (Richard Allen, A Closer Listen)
