The research school Architecture and Planning for the Urban Landscape’s started to operate in September 2008.Its aim is to provide a cross-disciplinary environment for postgraduate education specializing in the urban landscape.

Its objective is to provide prospective and existing postgraduate students with better knowledge of research and development within the subject area, as well as increased possibilities to establish their own national and international contacts.

The Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU (Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet) is responsible for the organization and running of the research school. At the moment the school is formed by Postgraduate students and supervisors at SLU as well as at a number of partner colleges/centres of education from other parts of Sweden (Lund University) and Norway (Norwegian University of Life Sciences – UMB) are associated to and active within the research school.

We are very interested in interchanging experiences and would like to invite anyone interested in research and practice in the Urban landscape to join this group and participate in further activities.

What is LAbash?

LAbash (landscape architecture bash) is a student run conference that serves as a platform for students from various universities to converge, exchange ideas and celebrate their passion for landscape architecture.

LAbash was conceptualized in 1970 by three students from the University of Guelph looking for an opportunity to network, exchange ideas and skills with various schools around North America. It’s immense success has continued to make it an annual tradition and is always highly anticipated by students and young emerging professionals during Spring Break.

The 2012 Conference will be hosted by the Florida International University Student Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects in our campus facilities in Miami and our newly inaugurated facilities at 420 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach [ Miami Beach Urban Studios - MBUS ].

The Conference will bring together students and professionals for three amazing days highlighting the unique aspects of the design industry through:

Educational Sessions, World Class Keynotes, Graphic Workshops Special Events, Design Charette, Exhibitors, Publishers, Social Events + More!

Our theme, Urban Oasis, will focus on the dynamic function that urban landscapes have in shaping the future of our cities. In recent years, landscape architecture has taken a more prominent role as a force that informs the urban condition and the critical relationships between humans and their urban environments.

Hi All,
Hope that you are fine! I've just got a new call: Managing the Urban Rural Interface. Think that could be interesting for you:

Hope to see/hear you soon!

Hey Renata.. I was told by Örjan that he had reported the credits but I guess that for you, Askild and the others that are not in SLU you will have to contact him directly and ask for a certificate like in the other courses. Let me know if I can help you with something.

About the software for online Seminars the VITERO one is a good alternative, unfortunately there is no way of using it for our own purposes unless we pay for it. We will try to explore other alternatives we will keep you posted. See you next week.!!!

I suppuse all of us are quite busy... Unfortunately I missed the online course, Camilo mentioned, but it would be nice to test the technique in one of our course. Now I have only a practical question. I've almost forgotten, but have you received something (comments, credit points) from the method I. course?

Hi everyone

I would also recommend a conference, it is arranged by my departement, is held in English and is taking place in Copenhagen at May 29th. It is called 'World in Denmark' and the theme is Change:

Change has become mantra: climate change, environmental, financial and political
change. Change in nature and society has before resulted in change in the aesthetic
language; as a sign of something upcoming or as a mirroring of something that has
arrived. Is this the case in today’s urban space? Do we see and do we need new
definition, new significance new use of the urban landscape and consequently a new
aesthetic language in the urban space?

See the full program here:

Please spread the words if you can think of anybody who might be interested.
All the best.

Hi here is a lecture that might be of interest to you. You can take part of it on the internet. It is done through a special software which you will have to download (see instructions bellow). Me and Andrew have used previously and it worked very well. We can considered the option of using this software for online seminars among our APULA Research School. Today is the last day for registering. Sorry for the late notification. If you have any questions let me know.

The lecture is being offered to members of the LE:NOTRE Network using the Vitero internet seminar room.

Starting on Tuesday 28th April at 17:00 C.E.T. the lectures will explore the provisions of the Convention and ideas and approaches to landscape planning, before moving to an overview of landscape planning approaches in a wide range of Central and East European countries and the ways in which the European Landscape Convention is (or is not) being implemented. We are very lucky to have the services of specialists in landscape planning from each of the countries concerned to provide these overviews. Finally, an attempt will be made to seek some generic concepts which provide common themes beyond the range of institutional and legal frameworks governing landscape planning in the different countries concerned.

To take part you will need to be registered on Vitero, if you are not already. To register and get a password please contact Sandra Schwaiger schwaiger@landscape.tuwien.ac.at BY 24th APRIL AT THE LATEST please. You will also need to download Vitero to your computer and to have a headset through which to listen and take part in the discussion. It is also beneficial if you have a relatively fast and stable internet connection. The information you will need to start using Vitero can be found on the LE:NOTRE web site:

We look forward to welcoming you on-line for the first lecture on 28th April. Please take the time to check your access to Vitero and run the necessary sound checks suggested.
