LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE EUROPE (LAE) roept u als professionals op om je meest relevante en mooiste projecten in te dienen voor publicatie in het zesde jaarboek over de Europese praktijk van landschapsarchitectuur. Care, create and act zijn de drie ontwerpthema’s die we in de vijfde editie van deze boekenreeks als fundamenteel voor landschapsarchitectuur hebben geïdentificeerd. De zesde editie bouwt voort op deze aanpak. Stuur je beste plannen en projecten in via de website. De selectieprocedure zal in september 2020 worden voltooid, waarna deelnemers worden geïnformeerd. Het boek wordt medio 2021 gepubliceerd.
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE EUROPE (LAE) calls on you as professionals from all over the continent to send in your most relevant and exemplary projects for publication in the sixth yearbook on European practice of landscape architecture.
We are entering the third decade of the 21st century. 2020 is a beautiful date, a double 20 – are we heading for a Twenties revival in creativity, spirit and beauty? At the same time, 2020 is a worrisome date – the planet is on fire, literally in Australia and in Brazil. Will we manage to get tools and techniques in place within this decade which scientists believe is our last chance to undertake action to ensure a habitable environment? Landscape architects cannot turn the planet into a marvel alone, they cannot prevent catastrophe alone. But they can join forces with other actors to take care of, to create and to act for resiliency beauty and survival. Care, create and act are the three design actions we identified as foundational for landscape architecture in the fifth edition of this book series. The sixth edition seeks to build upon this approach.
We are calling for traditional landscape architectural projects as well as for the results of an expanding professional practice. We are looking for designed and constructed sites of all sizes. We are also interested in receiving strategic projects and research results (i.e. studies and spatial scenarios on climate adaptation, energy transition, urban renewal, heritage development and infrastructure planning) in which the landscape architectural approach is predominant. We are looking for projects that redefine the playing field and scope of the creative practice, where society, politics, ecology and economy meet, at micro or macro scale, whether long term or ephemeral. LAE wants to explore how landscape architects in Europe are working and designing, on the threshold of a new decade, to sustain our beautiful planet and all life on it.
