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!
