The school is organised by the Institute of Landscape Architecture and the Institute of Spatial Planning at BOKU Vienna
Teachers and experienced students (master level) from the fields of landscape architecture and planning, geography, natural resources management, ecological engineering and the related design and spatial disciplines are invited to apply to the summer school, as lecturers and participants respectively.
The urban fringe northeast of Vienna’s city centre is characterised by ‘a wild spatial and typological mix of different landscape, historical, agricultural and urban elements – a commonly found state at the urban periphery’.
The events organiser notes that the marchfeld, the largest continuous agricultural plains in Europe, ‘reach deeply into the city’s urban areas’. Only in recent years, it says, have infrastructural amendments been applied to improve its integration into the city fabric.
The workshop will develop a strategy and design, in interdisciplinary teams, to address this. Participants will be able to attend lectures on related subjects and undertake excursions, ‘to inform their analytical and design work’.
