The successive definitions of the ‘skeleton’ have been refined throughout the research process in an iterative manner, defining four modes of practice: the modes of designing Armature, Ecology, Score and Platform.

The exploration of each mode of practice of designing robust landscapes, using a shifting understanding of the term ‘skeleton’ as an investigative tool, is the central argument of the research.

How can we create robust landscapes?

In order to answer this question, pruning the rose became one model for action, using cultivation as a ‘regime of care’. The rose itself as a living structure that man can shape has implied a tacit understanding of the key term ‘skeleton’, which has been expanded upon during the course of the PhD.
