X-LArch IV LANDSCAPE 100, 9th and 10th November 2012

In 2012, we celebrate the centenary of the first professional association of garden architects in Austria. On this occasion, the ILA Institute of Landscape Architecture at BOKU Vienna directs X-LArch IV, an international symposium on landscape architecture, to the profession’s past, present, and future. LANDSCAPE 100 will discuss the impact of landscape history on contemporary work and its potential for facing future challenges. Landscape history enables us to understand the forces that have built our landscapes and shaped the profession. In designing landscapes, we relate to historic layers of the site. Beyond that, we strive for a deeper insight into the development of design approaches, crafts, styles, and meanings. This insight is crucial for a forward-looking and innovative occupation with landscape issues. The symposium addresses practitioners, scholars, and students from Austria and abroad. Scholarly lecturers will reflect the maturation of the profession in tracing outstanding professionals and projects of the last decades. Practicing landscape architects will showcase recent works in a framework of references – be it history, ideals or ideas. Additional half-day workshops offer a platform to reflect various design approaches to meet current challenges of historic Viennese open spaces.
