I am Anna Maria Fink, a landscape architect, bookmaker and teacher, and the founder of Atelier Fischbach – an interdisciplinary design and research studio on landscape.
My interest lies in the unraveling of the relationships of people and their environments. My work shows these connections with place through the investigation of daily activities – what I call ‘topographic living’. Through my understanding as a landscape architect I look for new spatial organisations and adapted personal routines and rituals that can strengthen the connection between person and place. Small scale design interventions - like my 'topographic furnitures' - visualize and test these innovated ways of living in place.
My work takes the form of a visual narrative and often I use the medium of the book both as a working method to construct and develop this narrative as well as a means to communicate it. Furthermore I find it important to work in strong relationship with landscape and engagement with place and people. Therefore I strive to work as much as possible ‘in the field’ seeking for embodied knowledge through (collective) activities.
