Analysis of a given space from a lansdscape-architectural point of view; conceptual interpretation, preliminary design and design will be worked out.

The following courses can provide important synergies for the Landscape design project: 852313 Design and Planting, 852309 CAD in Landscape Architecture, 852311Modeling.

There will be two groups with different topics:

Design for the Westbahnpark in Vienna 15. The basic concept and contemporary solution for the entire area of the Westbahnpark will be developed. Expected cooperation with the initiative Westbahnpark.Jetzt, the Gebietsbetreuung and the Local Agenda. Preliminary information on the area: www.westbahnpark.jetzt

Schoolyard in Vienna Wieden. The limited courtyard of a primary school in the Gründerzeit neighbourhood is under high pressure of use. The street in front of the school could be used to compensate for this pressure. Design concepts for both open spaces - courtyard and street - are being developed and elaborated in detail in drafts. The project is being carried out in cooperation with the school and with the involvement of the pupils.
