The rapid changes in the global environment call for new ways of thinking beyond established categories of urban landscapes. It is only when living environments are considered on a large scale that they can be created in a sustainable way for future generations.
The contrasts between city and landscape are becoming more and more blurred. Locations that are difficult to define, that cannot be assigned to one category or the other, are coming into being. For such hybrid spaces, it is necessary to find new interpretations that are accepted by residents as attractive living environments. We comprehend considering spaces on a large scale, and thus as a “landscape,” as an opportunity for qualitative further development toward an ecological city-landscape, which provides a sustainable basis for life for future generations.
