Landscape Ambassadors – Analysing the architecture

Street view from Sópron.

We are approaching our theme of analysis – Stone, architecture – through field trips where we observe and discuss the use of local materials and different architectural styles in the region. It is a huge area, with much diversity, but also similarities. On our first field trip we visited several villages south of the Lake Fertö on the South side, exploring the streets, monuments, parks and graveyards as we went along.  Read the rest of this entry »

Landscape Ambassadors – First impressions

On our first day in Hungary we went on an all day field trip around our case area; the lake Fertö region, split between Hungary and Austria, located in the Carpathian basin.

Landscape Ambassadors

The end of the spring semester is a bit different this year, as I’m in a small group of landscape architect students from UMB  travelling to Sopron, Hungary for a two week intensive programme; a transnational and multidisciplinary workshop arranged by ERASMUS and the University of West Hungary. The course is entitled “Roots of the continuity – Cornerstones of the future landscape development in the Fertő/Neusiedlersee transboundary landscape”. The course description starts as follows:

The course aims at making a transboundary comparison of the landscape and its main elements in the Fertő/Neusiedler See region. Students in 5 transnational groups will have to detect the role of the five cornerstone elements (stone, water, forest, grassland, and vineyard) in the landscape, during the past and in the present. The human use, the man-nature interaction as well as the mutual  influences of the landscape elements – e.g. stone and forest, stone and viticulture, water and grasslands has to be revealed.

Through series of lectures, interviews with locals and stakeholders, landscape assessment tasks and more we will study the future visions and planning strategies for this area, from both sides of the border, discussing similarities and differences between them. Naturally, I’m looking very much forward to this course. We leave for Hungary this Saturday; updates will follow!

Project presentation – LAA215 Construction Design

The construction design course has finally been delivered and presented. It has been a very educational course, where the main emphasis has been on the design concept, while at the same time a lot of work has been put into technical solutions and construction material assessments. In many ways it shows how one as a landscape architect needs to keep everything in mind; from design to plan to descriptions; being creative in the design process but down to earth in how the project should be realised. It’s a challenging balance act.

  • We need to talk about water
    They say that the future wars and conflicts will be about water. Battles will be fought over a valuable and vital resource due to the decreasing levels of it. Despite our dependency of it, we seem to take it for granted. Is the ubiquity of water causing us to manage it so callously?
