Короткий фільм “Landscape Architecture: Rethinking The Future out of a Totalitarian Past” переосмислює тоталітарне минуле України

Україна здобула свою незалежність 29 років тому, але ландшафти її міст продовжують жити у радянському минулому. Брутальна радянська архітектура, як привид тоталітарного режиму, домінує в українських містах. Чому так мало змінилося за цей час та що потрібно для того, щоб міський простір в Україні відповідав гармонії між людиною та її оточенням?

Re: Landscape Reparations -- A developing concept

I have your paper in my collection of papers and I found it to be very interesting. It turned out that one of the leaders of the opposition to changing a name here in Dallas was an immigrant from Poland and I told him about your paper. It didn't have an effect on his opposition. Sorry about the delay in reply.

Re: Landscape Reparations -- A developing concept

Landscape reparations is definitely an interesting concept for the field of toponymy.

In the early 2000s, I wrote an article about the renaming of a street in Chicago from that of a white farmer/settler to a Polish-American hero. There was a big fight about it, one that lasted 19 years.

Although it is primarily narrative rather than theoretical, perhaps it would be helpful to you in some way:
“The Street Formerly Known as Crawford,” Chicago History (Spring 2001): 36-51.

Landscape Reparations -- A developing concept

The concept of landscape reparations is now part of public protests.

In this case landscape reparations is being mentioned as part of renaming Lamar St. which goes in front of the Dallas Police headquarters to Botham Jean Boulevard. Botham Jean was killed by a police officer who mistaking his apartment for hers barged in and shot him dead.
