103-0338-00LProject Week in Landscape Development Information Restricted registration - show details
Number of participants limited to 24.
5 credits9PS.‑E. Rabe, E. Celio, A. Grêt-Regamey
AbstractIn particular, the aspects measuring, understanding and assessing of landscape-relevant land-use, requirements and developments will be taught. Concerning the landscape development in a project area, aims will be developed and corresponding actions defined.
ObjectiveThe students are able to:
- recognize and undestand the history of land-use
- recognize and undestand the context of arrangement of a landscape
- assess a landscape in its entirety and in its single-elements
- understand and apply the concepts of the landscape approach
- prepare and provide substantiated actions
ContentThe course consists of
- four theoretical inputs from internal and external speakers
- a preliminary excursion to the project area
- two exercises for preparation
- the project week and the preparation of a report

Depending on the subject area to be processed (eg. water, landscape aesthetics, natural hazards, nature conservation), different methods are used.
This applies to both the methods of investigation of landscape-elements and characteristics as well as the methods for evaluation of landscape-elements and characteristics.

Subjects and methods are developed and defined in the preparation to be applied in the project week. Based on the assessments actions will be developed that are adapted to the definde question or problem in the light of a desirable development.
