What makes the profession of landscape architect:
In a comparison of all architectural tasks, landscape architecture represents for me the “supreme discipline” alongside the subject area of functional, energy-efficient and resource-saving building. The task area of the landscape architect with the positive effects on city and building, energy consumption, water cycle, climate and quality of life is essential for a future-oriented planning and building as well as for the adaptation of cities to the climate problem.
What I would like to recommend to my students:
My tips for your studies:
…and beyond: Be curious and open!
Benefit from the diversity of opinions and knowledge of togetherness – form networks!
Attentively observe, question and understand nature, natural processes, but also exemplary projects (best on site). Learn to see consciously in order to recognize qualities and to be able to transfer them to your own work. Efficient solutions can be found in the simple, in the old – perhaps forgotten over generations – as well as in innovative, future construction methods, materials and techniques.
