Composite Landscapes was on view at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum summer of 2013. The exhibition examined one of landscape architecture's most recognizable representational forms, the montage view. The exhibition gathered work from a select group of influential contemporary artists and a dozen of the world's leading landscape architects. These composite views reveal practices of photomontage depicting the conceptual, experiential, and temporal dimensions of landscape. The first exhibition
of its kind in North America, Composite Landscapes illustrated the analog origins of a method now rendered ubiquitous through digital means.
The graphic identity was derived from the works in the exhibition to reinforce the the exhibitions concept and carried throughout all deliverables.
The exhibition was very well received, and featured in Architectural Digest, and Elle Decor, as well as many others.
