Brussels-based landscape architect Erik Dhont acknowledges that the process of design occurs at different levels in both the public sphere and private creations, yet scale is always a priority.

Presented here are a selection of his plaster casts – independently conceived works of art that together form a collection of models. Serving as plastic tools in the creative development of spatial concepts, the minimalist language of Dhont’s plaster studies reflects the most basic recordings of a sculptor’s first gestures, integrating the narrative of landscape design with the genesis of a project. From topographical to topiary forms, their character is both natural and timeless.
