The persistence of the pastoral

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Citation (Scopus)


Architect, animator and educator Nic Clear challenges the contemporary notion of the pastoral to go beyond the simplistic binary opposites of the untainted rural idyll and the industrialised city. He explores how the narratives of the pastoral have provided a mainstay for science fiction and how this can be used to re‐imagine nature itself with the aid of advanced biotechnologies to create new architectures for the 21st century.
