Enge Kooperationen mit Architekten eingehen, Traditionen der eigenen Disziplin sehen und fortsetzen, Freiräume temporär oder nachhaltig gestalten, die Krise der Künstlichkeit überwinden – die Anforderungen an heutige Landschaftsarchitektur erhalten immer komplexere Dimensionen. Auf welche Weise können Gebäude und Freiraum entwurflich integriert werden? Welche Potenziale ergibt das Zusammenwirken von Landschaftsplanung und Ingenieurskunst? Was folgt, nachdem Design zur Künstlichkeit gerann? An zahlreichen aktuellen landschaftlichen, städtischen und privaten Planungen sowie anhand von thematischen Essays renommierter Autoren (u.a. Karl Ganser, Thies Schröder, Christian Welzbacher) zeigt das attraktive Buch, welche wegweisenden Antworten die landschaftsarchitektonischen Gestaltungen der Gegenwart auf zentrale Fragestellungen geben.

Cooperating closely with architects, observing and continuing the discipline s traditions, designing open spaces temporarily or for the long term, overcoming the crisis of artificiality - the challenges to contemporary landscape architecture are taking on increasingly complex dimensions. How can buildings and open space be integrated by means of design? What potential results from the interaction of landscape planning and the art of engineering? What are the consequences of design chasing after artificiality? Using examples from numerous contemporary landscape, urban, and private propects and in thematic essays by renowned authors (e.g., Karl Ganser, Thies Schröder, Christian Welzbacher), this attractive book reveals the pioneering responses that contemporary landscape architects offer to such central questions.

About the author (2007)

The Bund Deutscher Landschaftsarchitekten (bdla, Federation of German landscape architects) is an alliance of garden and landscape architects that represents their professional interests. Among the goals of the bdla are socially and ecologically based development of residential areas and landscapes as well as the planning of open space on the basis of well-grounded planning and design knowledge. With its Deutscher Landschaftsarchitektur-Preis (German landscape architecture prize), which has been awarded since 1993 and is not restricted to its members, the bdla has paid tribute to outstanding planning achievements that demonstrate both aesthetically ambitious solutions and ecological objectives.
