'[re]designing nature' at k/haus Vienna

Currently you can see an interesting exhibition at Vienna's Künstlerhaus. '[re]designing nature' presents 'Current Concepts for Shaping Nature in Art and Landscape Architecture' featuring work of contemporary landscape architects, architects and artists. 
The exhibition aims to 'inspire thought about our current relationship to nature, and infuse life into the most recent debates about socially fair, ecologically sustainable, and aesthetically up-to-date environmental design.' [source]. 
[re]designing nature was initiated by Maria Auböck and curated by Susanne Witzgall, Florian Matzner and Iris Mede. The exhibition in k/haus has just been EXTENDED until 27th of February.
