Review of Conference at Herrenhausen Palace Hanover
1-3 September 2015.
How can we transform urban landscapes through innovative approaches in design research? Studio Urbane Landschaften asked this question at the international conference Let's Walk Urban Landscapes.
Walking should be given serious thought in the discourse of landscape architecture, not only informing its intentions, but also - as the conference postulates - the processes of design and design research. If walking serves as a way to experience landscapes, then landscape architects could and should use it to get to know and understand the subject they are working on: the (urban) landscape, its users, its issues, its components. Walking is a tool that can be used in all stages of the design process.
