Landscape design research is important for cultivating spatial intelligence in landscape architecture. This study explores GIS (geographic information systems) as a tool for landscape design research – investigating landscape designs to understand them as architectonic compositions and to acquire design knowledge that can be used in the creation...

This paper explores infrastructure as a type of landscape and landscape as a type of infrastructure. The hybridisation of the two concepts, landscape and infrastructure, seeks to redefine infrastructure beyond its strictly utilitarian definition, while allowing design disciplines to gain operative force in territorial transformation processes....

Cities can be planned and designed to reduce their effect on biodiversity loss and may even be able to sustain biodiversity levels in some instances, due to ‘beta-diversity’. The heterogeneity of metropolitan regions can be expected to have a strong impact on beta-diversity. Tools such as landscape characterization can assist in the...

In the Osaka area in the 1880s, rice was grown mostly in dry fields in upland areas, and a few paddy fields were situated on the natural wet landforms along the major rivers and streams on the Osaka Plain. As the area developed, dry fields became irrigated, and the lowland fields were filled and converted to urban land uses. For the Osaka city...

This paper presents a theoretical and methodological framework for a comprehensive landscape characterization, focussing on the largest and most complex urban realm: the metropolitan region. Landscape character has in recent years emerged as a new paradigm to understand, monitor and evaluate cultural landscapes undergoing change. The scope of...

Ontwerpers en onderzoekers gebruiken analoge en digitale media om stad en land te begrijpen en vorm te geven. Omdat met name nieuwe media het mogelijk maken om het denken en communiceren over ruimtelijke ontwerpvraagstukken anders aan te pakken, dragen ze bij aan de ontwikkeling van het vakgebied. Steffen Nijhuis plaatst digitale media in een...

Landscape architects use analogue and digital media to understand and design urban areas and the countryside. Because new media in particular enable us to use different approaches to thinking and communicating about spatial design issues, they are contributing to the development of the field. This book chapter explains where digital media belong...

Dispersed urban regions are characterized by blurred boundaries between urban and rural areas resulting in complex new configurations of urban tissue and landscape space. These new hybrid landscapes challenge existing tools for landscape characterization, which are based on a traditional separation of urban and non-urban realms. This paper...
