FROM GARDEN ART TO LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE –
TRADITIONS, RE-EVALUATIONS, AND FUTURE PERSPECTIVES
Originally, the area of responsibility for landscape architecture was based on the premise that the planning and creating of open spaces such as parks and gardens was the business of garden artists. Today, the training of landscape architects and future challenges of the profession include the protection of natural resources and the environment, urban planning or tourism – to name but a few.
The international symposium “From Garden Art to Landscape Architecture – Traditions, Re-Evaluations, and Future Perspectives” addresses questions which, based on the notion of garden art, will help to reconstruct its historical development but also discuss the notion and the relevance of “art” in everyday work. The contributions will critically reflect on the professional self-image of landscape architects at the beginning of the 21st century.
The symposium is organised by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Gartenkunst und Landschaftsarchitektur (DGGL), by Fachbereich Herrenhäuser Gärten, state capital of Hanover, by VolkswagenStiftung, by Centre of Garden Art and Landscape Architecture (CGL) Leibniz Universität Hannover; with some organisational support by EGHN.
