Provides a multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary view to landscape architecture from the points of view of architecture, geography, history and communication science
A guide to landscape planning, underlined by case studies on how to intervene on industrial landscape or using participative methods, which is useful to elaborate projects
Landscape seen as cultural heritage, with approaches to memory, including how this can be communicated
This book deals with planning issues in landscape architecture, which start at the evaluation of the existing fabric of society, its history and memory, approached and conserved through photography, film and scenographic installations, a way in which the archetypes can be investigated, be it industrial derelict sites or already green spaces and cultural landscapes. It provides approaches to intervention, through rehabilitation and upgrade, eventually in participative manner. To such evaluation and promotion a couple of disciplines can contribute, such as history of art, geography and communication science, and of course (landscape) architecture. The field of landscape architecture reunites points of view from such different disciplines with a view to an active approach, a contemporary intervention or conservation. The book presents case studies from several European countries (Romania, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal), mostly for large landscape in the outskirts of the cities and in the parks.
