REALMS is a landscape practice working toward collective action with landscape-makers across the plains, hills, and mountains of Nepal. It proposes patterns of action centering land-based knowledge in struggles against climate crisis and chronic disaster-making. Much of this work is situated at points of overlap and friction between centuries-old cyclical migration, shifting weather patterns, traditional practices, new economies, trans-temporal agency, growing resource demands, and fluid terrains.
Dane Carlson is a landscape designer and researcher. He is an environmental design strategist at UNOPS Nepal and Assistant Professor at Principia College. He holds a Master of Landscape Architecture II degree (post-professional) with distinction from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
