MVT begins new rolling format, featuring work being done at the intersection of art, architecture, and landscape.  Our aim is to draw attention to those artists, urbanists, and designers who engage landscape to confront the aesthetic, ecological, political, and philosophical questions of our times.

We begin our new format with an interview with Public Studio, the innovative, political Canadian duo comprised of filmmaker Elle Flanders and architect Tamira Sawatzky. Read on here.
