Let's take the Picturesque exhibition as a starting point for a wide reflection on the landscape architect profession in the 21st century. More than a hundred years after the world in which Buyssens lived, what are the challenges for landscape architecture in the face of climate change, the biodiversity crisis, the mobility revolution? What new forms of collaboration between disciplines must be engaged to give sustainable answers to the problems encountered? What are the challenges in terms of training? Buyssens' work and the multiple resonances it provokes are an opportunity to question our current practices and to reflect on how the profession is reinventing itself in the era of the Anthropocene.
