L-x Lectures Part 1: 7.12.2023

Brno, Slovanské náměstí – Restoration of a Modernist Park by Leberecht Migge 1913

Zdeněk Sendler, Radko Květ, Júlia Bobríková

For more than a century, parks have responded to climate and social challenges. The lecture series explores the role of parks in the urban environment. The first lecture presents a park designed by the modernist and 'life reformer' Leberecht Migge in 1913 and restored in 2006. The landscape architect and the architect who restored the park explain their findings on the original design, the role Migge envisaged for the park and how they have interpreted the restoration work.

Further lectures in the series will present parks from the years 1978 and 2020 in order to compare social, ecological and design impacts.
