Landscape architecture has been promoting such integrated approaches but is of course not the only profession concerned with this task. In this seminar, we will explore how the concept is currently been understood by various European and international representatives. We will hear about case studies from both professional practice and research and reflect on the wider societal and environmental impact of green infrastructure.
The seminar is addressed to a worldwide target group of landscape architecture students or students from neighboring disciplines interested in learning jointly about this emerging professional and academic field. Neighboring disciplines are explicitly invited to attend as the subject depends on a multi-disciplinary approach.
