2012 – A year in full

2012

When looking at the past year, I was not sure where to begin a summary. So much has happened in one year, it has been difficult to grasp. Then I realised, hey, I have a blog, and there are such things as post archives. Neat. That’ll get me started.
Briefly, 2012 has been a year of change for me. Loads of activities at the University, creative workshops and projects, excursions, internships and jobs.

Remnants of the Amber Road

Remnants of the old Amber Road, an important trade route of the Roman empire, was the topic of study yesterday. We went to the historical museum in Sópron to get a lecture from professor János Gömöri, archeologist, explaining the discoveries of ancient relics during the development of the town.

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!
