Sustainable urbanisation, climate adaptation and biodiversity require a design approach that takes the landscape as its starting point. The existing landscape logic provides starting points for planning and designing a socially and ecologically inclusive spatial environment across scales, from city to street profile. The landscape offers structure, ecological coherence and variety, but is also flexible and multi-functional. Landscape also represents spatial-aesthetic values such as beauty and orientation in space and time. After all, the landscape is the result of man’s long-standing interaction with his natural environment. But how can we design spatial projects in a landscape-conscious way?
