Together as a landscape & urban design studio, Julia Watson & Marie Salembier are  exploring the rewilding of landscapes. Typically defined as restoring an ecosystem, rewilding is redefined as an untaming of urbanism towards  radical localism. Biodiversity becomes the building block of diverse, local symbioses –anthropological, zoological & horticultural.
